I have had a wonderful experience with the Center and have watched them contribute to the communities in Volusia, Seminole and Osceola counties. I take classes five days a week and participate on a volunteer basis as needed. This association with this wonderful non-profit organization and its dynamic leaders, Dario J. Moore and Craig W. Johnson is an inspiration in my life and to so many young people participating in the programs at the Center.

Five times a week in dance and attending all of their productions in the community.

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

The humanitarian relationship between its dynamic leaders and the community

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

With more attendance by the arts community

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Need for grants and funding for their projects.
