Description

The Annual Sky Kids Creative Arts in Action Fundraiser Benefit is the kick-off event to a great weekend of power-packed arts training and community outreach hosted and produced by The Long Beach Unity Festival in collaboration with Spirit of Praise International, Cabrillo High School, and the Long Beach Unified School District. All proceeds from this benefit celebration are used for the supplies, teaching materials, services, projects, and training activities for all registered 2019 Sky Kids attendees and in preparation for the 2020 launch of the first LBUF Sky Kids International in Jamaica, West Indies.

What is the Sky Kids Program?

LBUF SKY KIDS CREATIVE ARTS IN ACTION is in residence at 9 sites across Long Beach, CA. Operating four days per week (MON-THU), at each of the following locations: Northpointe Community Center (N.LB), Stephen's Middle School, and in seven (7) LBUSD elementary schools including Starr King, Grant, Herrera, Lafayette, Garfield, Hudson, and Burbank Elementary Schools in collaboration with the LB Parks, Recreation, & Marine’s WRAP after-school program and the YWCA. The program features professional dance training, children’s theater, instrumentation, vocals, production, and creative writing for 250 kids ages 6-16. The program targets at-risk children and youth 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.
