The Eagles of Foster Elementary School loves City Hearts and what they add to our school community. The parents are excited that their child is afforded the opportunity to experience activities such as dance, photography, Shakespeare, and so much more with the wonderful teaching artist. Foster's relationship with City Hearts has been long standing for many years as they support our school's belief of "Fostering Learning Through the Arts." We believe that all scholars should have access to the arts and with wonderful partners like City Hearts we are able to meet that goal.
Thank you City Hearts!

My first experience with City Hearts was watching performances done by young students. I was so impressed by the advanced level of the young performers, and passion shown by the students that I became involved as an employee. This program is a beautiful and necessary addition to the Los √Āngeles Education community.

Working with City Hearts over the last couple years has shown me the true meaning of selfless giving and caring for a community. Sherry and Bob have brought together a wonderful group of big-hearted people who truly believe in the mission of providing arts education to underserved communities in a way that is both effective and inspiring. I can only hope that the program offerings and outreach continue to grow each year so that more young lives can be touched and exposed to the world of art, performance and self-expression.

I've been a student with City Hearts, and I am pleased to say that the teachers and opportunities given are far from what is expected. I've been glad for having the opportunity to see young actors become bond of Theater, and immerse themselves from being novice players, to become great stars under the stage. It is all thanks to City Hearts this growth was possible, inspiring young actors to get a fine education in the arts, and seeing them achieving their dreams play by play.

City Hearts, without a doubt, has changed my life. I have been with the City Hearts program for well over four years and have loved every aspect of it. The sixth grade, which was my first encounter with the program, found me as a quiet, silent individual. I was a boy with much to say though, just not the knowledge of how to express those thoughts. And then, as fortune would have it, I was given the opportunity to participate in a City Hearts acting class. The experience was simply amazing. The teacher was exceptional, he listened with a kind ear but yet was strict and led us in the right direction. At first I didn't want to do any of it. Acting seemed dull and uninteresting. But as I stayed more and more I felt like I could become so much more with this program. A different man. We got to play fun game that helped us deal with any fright we may have on stage and before I realized I was no longer the same boy. I changed. I was different. More open, more social, more me. More at liberty to pursue everyone of those silent, pleading thought that nagged at me, telling me I should say something. My confidence grew and people saw me in a new light. But I didn't want to stop there. The whole acting experience changed my whole perspective of life. I want to be an actor now. City Hearts have given me dreams and aspiration I thought I would never have. Me an actor? That was the last thing I saw myself doing, but now that all I see myself doing. Thank you City hearts, for changing my life.
