Rating: 5 stars   14 reviews

Issues: Arts & Culture

Location: P O Box 800695 4000 Pioneer Road #201A Balch Springs TX 75180 USA

Mission:  

 

Our mission is to provide opportunities for cultural enrichment through broad-based educational experiences and quality performances and art showings to people of all ages.


Results: We spent a lot of time this raising funds to cover the costs of our new facility. We share a 1,200 square foot space with the chamber of commerce. In the past we scheduled other location in the city to offer services and programs but this new space allows us to expand our impact and our services.
Target demographics: We serve the general public, youth through adults, however recent statistics from the American Census indicate that up to 38.8 percent of youth under the age of 18 in Balch Springs live below the poverty level.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 200 youth and adults were served in 2010 - as audience members, performers, students, instructors, and artists
Programs: Community performances, Young Entrepreneur Club (age 13-22), fine arts classes (age 3-93)
2011 Top-Rated Nonprofit

The Balch Springs Visual and Performing Arts Alliance is the sole medium for young youth and the public at large to receive exposure to the arts through thetrical productions, musical performances and resources by means of educational courses that aim to promote involvement in the arts.

As a board member, but most importantly as an audience member, I've attended most of the theater showcases and have thoroughly enjoyed the fusion of comedy, music and theatrics in each production. Limited resources have not taken away from the abundance of talent ranging from backstage hands to the on-stage performers.

Involvement in this organization has allowed to me gain a further appreciation for the arts and understand the impact that the arts play in the development and expansion of culture in an area where the arts are not fully available or promulgated.

Changes and improvements to this organization is possible and plausible through a collaboration with businesses and all citizens in promoting community involvement so that an arts culture can be recognized and appreciated in a city that needs it.
