Balch Springs Visual and Performing Arts Alliance
August 5, 2011

There should be an option to choose several roles above. The Arts alliance encourages total participation by everyone including performing, volunteering, donating, conducting and taking classes, attending functions and much more.
The Balch Springs community is about 10 square miles and includes over 20,000 residents; more than 1/3 of which are below poverty level. By offering experiences in the arts, the alliance is enriching the lives of many residents as well as nearby communities.
Our youth need outlets for their creativity and the Arts Alliance provides one.

While it lacks funding, space, and participation; the Arts Alliance is a well structured organization with dedicated personnel. As time passes and more people get involved by donating their time and money, I can see the Balch Springs Visual and Performing Arts Alliance becoming an even greater asset to the Balch Springs community.
