Arts Inspired strives to inspire our community by providing students an opportunity to develop empathy, compassion and appreciation. Performances and fundraisers designed to benefit our community develop our students not only as dancers, but responsive and contributing citizens.
Carillon Assisted Living
For seven consecutive years, the Arts Inspired dancers have held annual performances for the residents and staff of Carillon Assisted Living. A special performing opportunity for our Pre-School and Early Elementary students, our annual visit always proves to be a blessing for both parties. Our young dancers not only get to give the gift of joy, but they receive the gift of personal satisfaction when they receive a hug of thanks or kind words from their new friends. Partnering with local businesses, such as Flowers on Broad Street, to bring special gifts to the residents makes the afternoon even more special when students visit room bound residents and brighten their day. One of our favorite events by far!!
Raising Hope is a special program for area Foster Families. This quarterly mini-camp is held FREE of charge to all area foster families.

Students enjoy a morning filled with dance, art, music, fun, laughter and friendship! Joined by the members of Inspirations, every child leaves happy, hopeful and ready to face the world!
It has been proven that dance/movement of any style can improve mental health, physical well being, muscular strength and balance in older adults. Combine that with fun, friends, special outings and more, and we have healthy, happy seniors in our community! Senior Tap/Movement classes are offered FREE or at a reduced rate to all participants. Tap students are provided shoes at no cost for use during class time. Low cost costumes, special performances and more create a balanced, learning environment whatever the participants goal may be!
