Joe's Movement Emporium/World Arts Focus
WISH LIST: $100: 10 movement classes for 1 senior; $500: 1 semester of healthy snacks for arts education students; $1100: 1 full tuition scholarship in Club Joe's after school program
Open 7 days a week, 12 hours a day, for classes, rehearsals, performances, and arts education programs, Joe's Movement Emporium is a hub of cultural and community activity. Home to more than 25 regional artists and groups who create, perform, and teach in its 20,000 square-foot facility, Joe's also invests heavily in after-school programs (2:30-6pm Monday through Friday), elementary and middle schools residencies, and intensive summer arts camps (8-week, all-day programs for ages 3-16) for the low- and moderate-income families it serves. Youth performance ensembles get in-depth instruction, rehearsals, and performance opportunities while also functioning as safe havens in the dangerous after-school hours. 3-D Productions and its Theater Tech Program provide training and employment for 40 local teens. Daily classes for adults in everything from modern to hip hop to African drumming mean that everyone in the family can participate. Joe's creates an extraordinary synergy between artists and residents that makes it unique: together they build community and arts and kids -- for everyone's greater good.
