"The mission of Ascend Performing Arts is to further the education and growth of young people through participation in high-caliber performing arts programs that promote teamwork and discipline, develop leadership skills, and enhance self-esteem."
The Ascend programs play an important role in providing for a higher quality of life. Unlike the vast number of opportunities in sports, there are few extracurricular arts activities available in our schools today. Ascend programs provide a much-needed outlet for those interested in music and dance. The organization provides opportunities for musicians to expand their level of skills while developing them into contributing citizens.
Annually, Ascend Performing Arts programs and educational outreach clinics directly impact over 1,000 youth with hands-on instruction, and more than 3,400 students with the opportunity to attend and/or participate in our clinics and programs. In addition, over 15,000 people attended events developed and produced by Ascend Performing Arts. Combine this with two performing programs touring nationally, and the organization touches the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in one year alone.
