IN-STEP DANCE COMPANY
June 23, 2010

Arts in Motion is a non-profit company of dancers, ages 6 to 19, formed from the In Step Dance Company. The mission of these dancers is very simple. They are "kids working for kids". Every year, this group of young dancers reaches out to children all over the Houston area. They have brought performances to the children and families at the Ronald McDonald House at the Houston Medical Center each holiday season for the last four years, have performed at area Houston events, including receiving invitations from Houston Mayor White to perform at the Holiday Light Festival in Memorial Park and the Houston Rockets to provide dance entertainment and now going into our local Elementary and Jr. High schools educating the community on the Art and History of Dance. We are trying to keep the Arts alive in our Community. It is our goal to continue to reach out into the community to bring the performance arts to more children. Each year we hold a Dance Concert. This concert allows us to build our funds to continue our community outreach. It also allows us to provide scholarships to children that want to dance but cannot afford the opportunity. In 2007, we provided $5,000 in scholarship awards, including a scholarship for a new college student majoring in the arts. We hope to increase that amount dramatically in 2009 and in 2010. We want to continue to host Master Class are the studio location as well.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have witnessed amazing young dancers grow from their experience to continue dancing and music classes. Without their scholarship, they would have not been able to continue.
