Ballerina's of the Bayou

Ballerina's of the Bayou C.A.R.E., is an art and education 501c.3 focusing on health, wellness, education and the arts. We host school aged students K-12 in our after school, monthly, and summer program. During the program participants will receive after school tutoring and/ or summer enrichment, fitness instruction, money management, personal development and career planning, and monthly dance workshops. Opportunities will include performances at local events, health and wellness classes/ nutrition, mental health counseling. We also partner with other local organizations to promote subject matter specific evidence and training.              

         Through this program we plan to ensure that all students participating will receive total well being physically, financially, mentally and spiritually to minimize the incidence of school aged drop outs as LA has one of the highest rates of middle school drop outs, high crime rates, and provide a true platform to ensure the success of the personal development of each participant.
