About this event

The Northeast Performing Arts Group (NEPAG) will host the Dynamic Gospel Explosion fundraiser on Saturday, February 19 at THEARC Theater, located at 1901 Mississippi Avenue, S.E., Washington, D.C. 20020.

The Dynamic Gospel Explosion is not a competition, but an evening of praise and worship. This annual event is celebrated in partnership with the District’s faith-based community and will showcase some of the best gospel artists and liturgical dance ministries in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

This year’s fundraiser will be hosted by gospel Comedienne Tanya Lewis and feature performances from the Northeast Performing Arts Group, Raw Element Dance Company, Main Attraction Performing Arts Center and many more.

The auditorium doors will open at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 19, and the show will start promptly at 6:00 p.m.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door on the day of the event. Advance tickets can be purchased online at http://nepagdgefundraiser2022.eventbrite.com.

The NEPAG is celebrating 42 years of service to the arts and is a nationally known 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization dedicated to changing the lives of youth through exposure to the performing arts. The proceeds from this year's fundraiser will be used to augment funding for NEPAG's year-round performing arts and academic-related programs for at-risk District youth, with an emphasis on wards east of the river.

Organizer of NE Performing Arts Group presents Dynamic Gospel Explosion Fundraiser 2022

In 1979, dedicated youth activist Rita Jackson established NEPAG to provide performing and visual arts opportunities to youngsters living east of the river. Soon it became clear that escalating neighborhood violence and drug use meant that kids needed more: discipline, commitment, and academic support. So, the NEPAG became a safe haven where kids could prepare for life while exploring the arts and enriching their academic skills. Now, 6 days a week during the school-year, and in a 9-week arts camp, youngsters ages 3-18 receive instruction in dance, voice, drama, percussion, and painting, woven together with literacy and computation skills. To help them cope with daily challenges, conflict resolution and problem-solving skills are part of the mix. Two hundred and fifty performances and two major shows a year engage a cast of 75 young people and make cultural events available to a community that would otherwise have little access to them. When you contribute to the NEPAG, you give the kids of Ward 7 a chance to succeed at life ... and prove that art can heal.
