in The ARTS
Diversity In The ARTS is a performing arts culture, whose mission is to make a positive impact in the lives of youth by providing artistic enrichment programs that will help cultivate confidence and character through creative expression.
We promote a community of growth and believe that all youth should have an opportunity and outlet to express themselves. Our goal is to empower them to discover the creative ability within and to provide an environment that encourages positive communication and effective articulation.
IN SCHOOL AND AFTER SCHOOL ARTISTIC PROGRAMS
DiTA is dedicated to supporting our educational systems and extending the knowledge base of our children. We provide onsite after-school programs that will expand artistic training for students or give them an opportunity to explore other art interest through our workshops and intensive trainings.
SUMMER MINI ARTISTIC CAMPS AND INTENSIVES
DiTA also partners with youth community centers, daycares, churches as well as other youth theater programs in providing onsite Spring/Summer camps, workshops, and intensive training.
DiTA sponsors free community concerts and productions throughout the year to promote messages of love, hope, and unity through artistic expression.

"Our goddaughter, Mariah attended the 2018 DiTA camp. She had a blast! We were in awe to see so many hidden talents in Mariah come to LIFE during the DiTA summer camp finale! It was well worth the investment we made in Mariah and the DiTA team made it well worth the experience!"
