Why Support YMTC, Why Now?
YMTC gives young performing artists the chance to explore their passions and follow their dreams by offering rigorous, professional-quality training and performance experience. Our students tell us that they leave YMTC's workshops and productions with more confidence, stronger empathy, a greater sense of responsibility, and a deeper capacity to imagine, create, and perform. They have learned to pay close attention, to communicate with one another, and to energetically participate in the collaborative process. Our youth need these qualities, now more than ever.
In the current harsh economic climate, opportunities for young artists to develop these strengths are diminishing. As financial support for the performing arts dwindles, YMTC is committed to making sure that this doesn't happen in our community, because our young people are not only the next generation of artists, but are the next generation of engaged citizens.
