Loves to dance and has learned so much

Isabella loves to dance and has learned so much. She cheers and does spirit squad at school, but they will not be doing it this year. Dance classes are very important to her and she loves the instructors she has had.

Focus on nothing else … is such a blessing

Woodlawn Arts Academy has been a constant in our girls’ lives. Through the losses of their grandmothers and other trials that life brings, being able for them to come here and dance and to not focus on nothing else but dance is such a blessing for them. One of our girls has branched off of dance and on to guitar. She is thriving! Thank you for the helping hand in bringing some stability in such a crazy time in life! Also, in helping to give them the confidence they need!

Will help her be able to engage with kids her age

We greatly appreciate everything Woodlawn has done to help our daughter improve and enhance her development and balance issues due to her hearing loss. She is going to strongly rely on services/programs thru Woodlawn this year due to her health issues and COVID. We do not want her to feel isolated being she will be homeschooled for 3 rd grade. And with the programs offered and a chance to qualify for financial assistance this will help her be able to engage with kids her age and enjoy other art/music/dance classes offered.

We would not be able to do so many fun things … if not for the gracious scholarship

My daughter loves enjoying programs at Woodlawn such as her dance classes, art and theatre camps and more! We would not be able to do so many fun things with Woodlawn if not for the gracious scholarship we receive. Thank you so much!

The foundation to explore and grow her artistic skills

Olivia’s recommendation into the Woodlawn A.R.T.S. program her 8th grade year gave her the foundation to explore and grow her artistic skills. Now a high school senior, Olivia was awarded a $30,000 scholarship from Ringling College of Art and Design where she will major in illustration and minor in business art. She will have the opportunity to work with Disney’s Animation Studio, DreamWorks, Pixar, Sony Production and ESPN. Olivia was able to find herself with the help of the A.R.T.S. program and has an amazing career ahead of her, thanks to Woodlawn Arts Academy!

His love of music and theatre has grown so much

The financial assistance program has helped our family tremendously. It has allowed our family extracurricular programs that we wouldn’t be able to afford. Being a single mother and only being able to work part-time puts a hinder on income and the financial assistance program definitely help us enroll my son into all of the classes that he loves.

My son has ADHD and sensory issues, and going to Woodlawn programs has greatly helped reduce his anxiety. All of the staff and other children are so kind and welcoming to him. He has become so much more social and outgoing since starting classes at Woodlawn.

He loves the arts like music, acting, dance and art. All of these areas he is able to explore at Woodlawn. He loves coming here and has loved all of the classes he has taken. His love of music and theatre has grown so much. I truly appreciate all of the assistance. Thank you for everything.

Sincerely,

Kristina B.
