Beck Center is an great organization that provides quality arts experiences at a great value. Whether you are an experienced artist or a beginner, young or old there is always something new and challenging to find on stage or in a classroom.

Arts organizations like Beck Center are essential to providing students with opportunities to explore their creative side and develop important life skills especially in areas where schools are limiting or no longer providing arts education and experiences to their students and communities.

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

seeing the joy on the faces of the young students, how talented they are and how important Beck Center is to them and their families.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

improve aging facilities

Beck Center has become a very special place for my family. My children love the classes, and the entire family enjoys the exceptional theater.

Before my daughter was diagnosed with ADHD, she had a very difficult time fitting in at school. But she never had a problem at the Beck Center. She excelled in her art classes and found a place she could be herself in the theater classes. It's a safe place for her and for the many other creative children who attend with her to be themselves without judgment.

We also find attending the professional and youth theater shows with our children to be a great way to introduce them to live performance. Many of the shows are family-friendly and the price is very affordable for families while still be high quality.

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

the way my children have excelled in the arts education classes. We belong here.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

upgrade the aging facilities and recruit more children from low income families to participate in the classes.
