Hope Stone Inc
February 24, 2010

Hope Stone has personally brought so much art to my self and my family. Where can you go as a 40 year old who has not taken ballet in 24 years and be comfortable dancing with ex principal ballerinas? Hope Center... Where can a 12 year old boy go to learn photography and art, on a scholarship, and have a teacher that propels his self-esteem to the stars? Kids Play through Hope Stone...Who places on stage an unbelievable group of dancers and musicians, somehow highlighting each individual talent to create a masterpiece of art? Hope Stone. The organization , with Jane Weiner at the helm, is a true gem in the Texas art scene. Now that I live in London, it is one of the things about Houston I miss the most.
