Review for Multi-Arts, Inc., Hadley, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We found Multi-Arts when we moved to Amherst in 2002. It was our introduction to the area, and we were amazed by the energy and commitment of the professional artists running it. My daughter has returned every summer since. She discovered flamenco (how many programs for kids offer flamenco!) and has become a very good dancer. Multi-Arts also expanded her love of music -- and her love for the family behind the program. It is a program that should be year-round, in the schools, and expanded to allow a larger number of participants. It's great that they extend financial help to children who otherwise might not be able to participate.

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

performances for parents

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it year-round and enable it to keep the best counselors and teachers who have to move onto find full-time work

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

my daughter's joy

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

committed, professional, and enthusiastic

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand to a year-round program, do arts programs in the schools, help create offshoots of the program in other communities, and find a permanent space.

Ways to make it better...

one longer session was added to let those kids most interested in creating a performance piece do so.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financial and not having a permanent space
