I feel honored to make comments for the Arts 2011 campaign for LQ's performing arts center. LQ's has assisted in providing the introduction to the arts for many children who otherwise would not have that experience. LQ"s not only expose them to the arts, but educates them on the necesssary discipline and sacrafices that one has to utilize to be successful in life and to be a positive contributor to society. LQ's goes the extra mile to insure that all attendess get this opportunity. I have witnessed LQ's involvement to insure such by the financial committment made to make it so that everybody has the opportunity to be a part of a performance, either partcipating or viewing for the experince. Not asking for a financial payback in many instances. You wonder how LQ's is able to do this. I know for a fact that the owner could be in a very lucrative career but I believe that there is a stronger desire to empower other people to bring out their talents which helps them achieve confidence in themselves to go as far as they want to in a positive direction.

Being an older volunteer, I have come to realize the dedication of people involved in the performing arts. Utilizing some of the techniques taught, I have become a better person in performing duties in my everyday life. When I see an actor perform in all venues, I have a greater respect and know that they had a commitment to their craft which caused them to go the extra mile for whatever role, large or small, that they portrayed. The experience with LQ's has assisted in me discovering my hidden talents.

I would not do anything different because LQ's goes the extra mile. However, the extra mile is the minimum that LQ's is doing. I am sure that LQ's would challenge its self to go even further if the necessary funds were available to assist.

My daughter and son's were members of LQ's Performing Arts from opening in 2004 through 2010. They took hiphop, breakdancing, acting, vocal and ballet. It gave them confidence to push to succeed, it showed them to be organized and scheduled. We have so many wonderful memories and friends that were made. It made them feel a part of something extraordinary and we all have been and still are very proud to say we are from LQ's Performing Arts Center.

Just the network of great people from different backgrounds provides personal fulfillment and adventure. But overall, the director, LaQuette, pushes to bring out our personal best. Since performing with LQ's, I have made connections within our industry for other performing arts opportunities.

LQ PERFORMING ARTS CENTER is an outstanding organization, that teaches and reaches youth from all walks of life. This organizatoin teaches them discipline through the arts of dance, theater, performing arts. I witnessed a perfomance with my wife last year, I was amazed at the skill level and committment of the youth, that where involved with the program. I whole heartedly support this organization's activties in the community, they are positively effecting the well being of our urban teens and families. Our local communties need more programs like these to keep our youth involved and acquiring higher heights of development.

I've been dancing with LQ's Performing Arts Center on and off for the past eight years. Not only has it been a safe place to go to let loose and dance, it's become my second family. The people involved are so nice and easygoing, I always walk out with a smile on my face. LQ's kept me out of trouble when I was younger and helped me focus on things I want in life. It really is a great organization.
