WEST Performing Arts

WEST Performing Arts provides arts education programs to over 10,000 local youth at our studio and in 15 school sites throughout Santa Cruz County annually. We give young artists and audiences the invaluable knowledge that their imaginations have had a positive and profound impact on their world. All of our classes, training programs and productions are process-driven, believing that the creative journey is what matters. Using integrated art forms as our tools, we strive to build confidence, communication and community. We believe in the power of education and the importance of literacy. Specific sponsorship of this event supports our future leaders program which mentors next generation leaders, entrepreneurs, artists and educators offering them a chance to train with creative professionals, learn job skills, earn credit towards their own education and hone leadership ingenuity. The program includes a Youth-for-Youth training program wherein older participants create and pilot theatre and literacy programs for younger children. We serve the all of Santa Cruz County, from Davenport to Pajaro.
