Purelements: an Evolution in Dance ("PE") is a 501(c) (3) performing arts organization founded in 2006, by Kevin A. Joseph and Lakai Worrell. Through our programs, we use the arts as a vehicle to support personal development, expose children in underserved communities to careers in the performing arts, support the aspiring artists is serve with developing and refining their talents, and educate its program participants and audiences on social issues affecting their communities. We are in need of assistance in the areas of Administrative assistance, production help, marketing as well specifically for our COAR program.
Purelements’ Center of Artistic Refinement (COAR) is a rigorous youth and pre-professional training program designed to expose and encourage young people to explore careers in performing arts through technical training, performance opportunities, and mentorship. Participants study various disciplines including Classical Ballet, Modern, Traditional West African, Hip Hop, Musical Theater, Jazz, and Choreography. COAR is an ongoing program normally running for 35 weeks each year from September to June. Every Saturday the program provides dance instruction for up to 150 students aged 3-21. Numbers have been decimated for 2022 and we are working to rebuild the program beyond its pandemic numbers.
