Hope Stone is lead by one of the most giving woman I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She has a way of making everyone she deals with feel special. That quality permeates her organization! Jane and Hope Stone Inc. work tirelessly to enable children with a stronger sense of self worth and appreciation for art. Hope Stone is also a sanctuary for us adults to go to for art and revitalizing. I can offer no constructive feedback other than I hope you have the funding the stay around for a long time.

Where do I begin? Perhaps it could inhabit a larger facility to be able to expand their work to include many more kids that need the kind of outlet she so expertly provides. It could also employ and train some great people to help in that expansion.

Every experience I've had with Hope Stone has been fantastic. Their adult classes are excellent and the work they do with under served children is amazing. Director Jane Weiner has a clear vision of an arts center that welcomes everyone to learn.

Hope Stone is a remarkably encouraging environment for kids to learn about performance arts alongside professional performance artists. The teachers are genuinely passionate about sharing their love for music and dance and the written word. Kids learn that they are artists too, and wow, you should see how they shine with enthusiasm and blossoming self-esteem!

I have known Jane Weiner, director and "energizer bunny" for Hope Stone for about 15 years. Jane has brought vision, creativity, love, inspiration and "hope" to all who are touched by her. Hope Stone is a place of refuge, joy and enduring inspiration and fun for all who enter, young and old. I have personally benefited from Pilates, yoga, gyrotronoic, and yamana ball classes in her studio. The instructors who grace Hope Stone are all incredibly talented and knowledgeable in their particular areas. I know that Jane is an inspiration to all who desire to help others, whether it be through adult fitness classes or working with children in the many programs offered.

The Great!

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

Attending classes at Hope Stone has increased my personal knowledge of fitness and helped me stay flexible and healthy as a 66-year-old woman. In addition, the young people who populate the programs at Hope Stone lead better, more creative lives.

Hope Stone with 10 million bucks...honestly I cannot imagine that much would change regarding the vision. Just more opportunities for more students. Jane has lots of wonderful ideas!

Hope Stone is amazing! Their dance performances are innovative and impactful. Their teachers are caring and well trained in their technique. The kids bloom in this environment that fosters creativity and curiosity. It is the real deal and an organization that any parent would love for their child to be a part of.

Hope Stone is creative combination of all the things Jane Weiner loves: children and all people, actually; dance and all arts, actually, plus lots of philanthropy and community service. For adults, there are classes in a broad range of dance forms and movement with the very finest teachers. There is "Parent & Me" and "KP Tinies" for very young children where they are allowed to use their imagination to express themselves through movement and learn share and wait their turns. For old kids there is "Kids Play" and "KP Teens" for which at-risk kids pay no tuition. Here the self-expression continues in the safe and loving environment which Jane cultivates because she believes that "every child is an at-risk child." In fact, everyone at Hope Stone, no matter what their age or reason for being there, feels when they enter the door, that they are at home.

The Great!

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

the talented kids I have seen develop out of her programs and go on in the performing arts.
