Hope Stone is an amazing organization dedicated to helping promote the arts for young people. As an educator at the Aldine Independent School District, Hope Stone arranged for free concert tickets to it's annual performance. Many of these students had never seen a professional dance performance. Staff from Hope Stone also came to teach at the school's summer intensive, and welcomed these students to Master Classes held at the Hope Stone Studio. Ms. Jane Weiner's capacity to share her art and vision, and welcome all to her facility make this organization unique in it's outreach. Several of the students who attended these events are currently dancing at the college level, and have been inspired and motivated by vision and power of Hope Stone Inc, and it's director.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
opening a door for students to travel beyond their immediate environment to pursue a life in the arts.
