I became an intern at Hope Stone right after I graduated from college and moved to Houston 2 years ago. At this time I did not have a job yet in the Houston area, but I knew Hope offered a welcoming start to jump into the Houston arts community. It is a place I can go to take class; to continue growing as an artist, to come back to my center, and to be with others who share my love for learning about movement. Jane has had a huge impact on my dance education since college. She and the entire Hope Stone staff have such a generous, genuine, and positive energy. One of the most positive programs that this organization has in effect is HopeWerks; a residency program that allows young and growing artists the opportunity to use the space for artistic creation and production. I have been a part of 2 HopeWerks so far and have applied for the opportunity to have my own residency. Hope Stone is definitely an asset to the Houston arts community. It is one of the few organizations in Houston in which I have felt at home.
