Our work is about building a happier community, empowering people to grow, and harnessing the economic vitality of the arts. Our aim is to support and empower local artists; increase arts engagement within the broader community; and promote compassionate and ethical living through arts education and events.
Sending a huge shout out to the Hoi An community for your ongoing kindness, encouragement and support. We just love this town, and are thankful every day to be doing what we love in such an inspiring place.
Thanks to our students, in particular, for making each day a magical adventure. We cannot wait to continue growing with you, as we discover what the next 12 months has in store!
The arts have the power to bring about change, and we will work tirelessly in our efforts to spread joy, and deliver programs that foster personal growth and awareness within the Hoi An community.
Earlier this year we held our first annual Danceathon, and raised more than 35,000,000 VND to help disadvantaged kids get ahead!
We’d like to send a MASSIVE shout out to our fab teachers: Henry Sun, Veronika, Yanina Dachko, Paola Milan, Cedric Tschirky, and Chau and Maciej from Swing Cool Kidz Da Nang-Hoi An. Thanks for donating your time, bringing your A-game, and helping us dance up a storm!
Thanks also to Salt Pub and Restaurant for hosting the event—and to their management duo, Elyse and Tony, for making sure we had everything we needed.
To everyone who attended, danced or donated, thank you so, so much for making our first ever DANCEATHON a HUGE success!
