What is Sky Kids?
LBUF SKY KIDS CREATIVE ARTS INTENSIVE is in residence at 8 sites across Long Beach, CA. Operating three days per week (TUES-THU), at each of the following locations: Northpointe Community Center (N.LB), Stephens Middle School (W.LB), and in six (6) LBUSD elementary schools including Starr King, Grant, Herrera, Lafayette, Edison, and Burbank Elementary Schools in collaboration with the LB Parks, Recreation, & Marine’s WRAP after-school program. The program features professional dance training, children’s theater, instrumentation, vocals, production, and creative writing for over 200 kids ages 6-15 year-round. The program targets at-risk children from diverse, multi-cultural, and under served communities.
Through Sky Kids, children are reached at an earlier age with quality, arts education and technical training that builds momentum & passion for the Arts, and assists in providing opportunities/resources to low-income families with gifted children.
The Results: Children and Youth are disciplined, developed, and equipped at an early age to embrace performing arts as a healthy means of creative self-expression, physical/spiritual well-being, and preparation for college-level Performing and Visual Arts majors.
Sky Kids is designed to build self-esteem, awareness, discipline, and enthusiasm for the Arts with a holistic approach that unites, heals, and inspires each child to success. Sky Kids is a joint collaborative effort between The Long Beach Unity Festival Inc., Spirit of Praise Sacred Artistry International, and The Dancer in Me Training Institute.
