So many arts organizations focus on serving large numbers with low quality in programing. They touch the surface of arts "diciplines" and provide no foundation for career building in the arts. They leave training to college for which most students is too late. However, This organization focuses on creating real world experiences for children and youth who are beening trained in performing arts. The children and youth are clearly given roles that they have been prepared to undertake and placed them with professional directors and choreographers under professional expectations. This vocational experience alone is worth the investment into this organization. Their alumni speaks volumes of the successs both from their affilate school, the Eastern Virginia School for the Performing Arts and CAPA Fund's Americian Youth Ballet Company and the American Youth Players.
