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.

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

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.

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

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.

LQ's Performing arts center put on a Fantastic show. I am glad to have had the opportunity to work with all involved. Working on the show allowed me the priceless experience in stage management. It also gave me a look into the hard work and effort behind the scenes before show times.

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.

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.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
