I put my daughter In LQs, it was one of the best things i did for my daughter. LQs, made a difference in her life. LQs wasnt about taking a class, it was family. It gave my daughter confidence, selfworth, and making goals for herself. She was given new experiences about life and i thank Ms. Milner for that.

By having my daughter in LQs, that will always be some of who she is today.

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

Not do a thing.

It's been so wonderful to be part of this organization! From day to day, it's been a pleasure to see how many people have greatly benefited from LQ's Performing Arts Center. From the performances to the practices, the bonds that are created are quite amazing. More people need to know about LQ's Performing Arts Center and all the wonderful things that they have planned in the future.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization by seeing how this organization can affect a person's life in a positive way. There are people who see LQ's as an additional family member, because that's how loving and opened-armed everyone who is affiliated is. It's a great feeling to know that people carry a special place in their heart for LQ's.

LQ Performing Art Center has help children not only learn how to dance , act, and sing but create a love for the arts that I have never seen before. The children are dedicated and love what they are able to achieve. The director, Laquette Milner, gives all of her time, patience and love to each child. She goes far beyond any person to help and teach her students how to express themselves through their dance and shows them everyday that hard work produces results. Many hours have gone into creating successful productions including the most recent one, The Hip Hop Wizzard of OZ. I has personally been a pleasure working back stage at many productions and even having a small part in help create pure genius!

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

I have seen the results by the outcome of the children that have been involved with LQ from the being. These children started when they were nine or ten years old, now they are graduates from high school and being a part of LQ has help them stay away from negative environments. This experience has also taught them a skill that many of them have continued and have very promising careers

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

The only change would be to bring more help in so they can continue helping even more children and can reach out to a wider range.

LQ's Performing Arts Center is an amazing experience for all ages. I was involved for over 7 years, now I help support in everything they do. Being invovled with LQ's was like having a second family. Its helped me in so many ways, it kept me focused in school and staying out of trouble. I also developed many relationships with the other dancers, and I still continue those relationships.

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

My experience began when I was in 6th grade til I got married and moved. But I still go to support LQ's Performing Arts Center.

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

I honestly wouldn't make any changes.

Lq's is a wonderful organization that provides a positive outlet for people of all ages to express themselves through the world of dance. Everyone is treated like family. I've been connected to the organization for years and love being able to watch these kids who came in with little to no experience grow on stage. They are very talented individuals whose confidence has been built to do what they do best and what's in their hearts and that is dance. I guess the best I can say is, these individuals are serious about dance and leave their hearts on that dance floor every time while being respectful.

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

I've watched them perform at numerous events throughout the years. These kids are extremely talented.

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

try to get the community to show more support to keep dance alive in the hearts of the children.

LQ's Performing Arts Center means so much to me. They've helped me out in ways I can not fully describe. Many times I was going through things and the only thing that seemed to keep me in good spirits during the week was the fact that I had to attend class at LQ's. I miss going there.

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

the great motivation methods they use. The instructors really know how to get a student to do what they need to. And the best part of it is that they don't force you to do anything-they make sure you're ready to perform-it becomes a student's decision.

This is a great organization! Everyone treats each other like family. And they're such a talented group! You can tell that everyone involved really likes being there. I would recommend this program to everyone and anyone.

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

that they take in everyone; no one is left out. Everyone is made to feel welcome. You can tell that everyone likes being there. I also like the fact that they bring a sense of respect when dancing- from their dance moves to the music that they dance to.
