Mission: D.A.S.H. Center for the Arts is a non-profit organization dedicated to broadening the horizons of inner city youth by means of the Arts. D.A.S.H. Center for the Arts provides quality performing arts instruction and programs to the underserved communities and lower income families of Tacoma/Pierce County. D.A.S.H. Center provides access to the works of under-appreciated African American and other minority artists. The D.A.S.H. Center for the Arts is a home for people, primarily youth, to develop natural talent, confidence, and self-esteem, as well as acquire the skills necessary for a career in the performing arts.D.A.S.H. stands for Dancing, Acting, and Singing in Harmony. While the D.A.S.H. Center for the Arts is available to and welcomes persons of all walks of life, its primary targets are inner city youth, who otherwise, would have less opportunity to explore and develop their creative abilities. For this reason the D.A.S.H. Center for the Arts is a non-profit organization. D.A.S.H. is the home for the active, community outreach organization, Reality Check.

I love this place. My daughter has been dancing with dash & reality check for 5 years. She started out very shy and withdrawn and now she's blossoming into a true performer and is planning to go to the school of the arts and juliard. Dash instructors take special care to teach the kids and boost their self esteem. Can't ask for a better set up.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping to keep children off drugs, out of gangs, and in school.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Watching the kids grow and learn. I love to see them perform.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very caring, really interested in the kids lives in and outside the center.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand to touch more underserved, at-risk youth.
