Mission Statement

"The true artist does not create art as an end in itself; he creates art for human beings. Humanity is the goal." - Bronislaw Huberman

Inner City Youth Performing Arts is dedicated to providing a superior education of music and performing arts to under privileged children in Miami. We wish to prepare them for a more advanced education and potentially a career. We do this by providing the instruction and guidance they need to flourish and by giving them the opportunity to hold performances displaying their masterpieces. Ultimately, our success comes in the life-long inspiration and purpose that our students find.

Description

"Art exists for the human species. I think that all of the people who love art, those who teach art, and all of you should burn with the obligation to save the world." - Shinichi Suzuki

Our after school classes are taught individually and in small groups to ensure that each child is given the unique and personalized instruction they need. Through out each semester the students are working on a performance they are to hold during the holidays & end of the school year. For each production the students are to have both group and solo performances. The preparation before the performances helps them to gain and understand real dedication, work ethic, self-discipline, team work, and patience. The performance itself gives them a wealth of inspiration and confidence that can only be found on stage. As the kids work and grow together in their newfound love and passion, their lives begin to transform.
In addition to our classes, to help broaden the horizons of our students and gain a better understanding of them, we provide our them with "Enrichment Hour". We’ve contacted highly successful artists, musicians, dancers, and actors from all over the world to provide us with various inspirations and personal favorites to introduce to each class. After reviewing the submissions, once a week, we exhibit them to our students and discuss what they learned, loved, and appreciated in each compilation.
