Ovation School of Musical Theatre's owners, Michelle and Matt McCord and their team of extraordinary teachers have been training young students in the performing arts. for 6 years now. Their purpose then and continuing now is to teach the skills to inspire and motivate students to be the best they can be whether they wish to be a professional or just as a hobby. More importantly, research shows that participating in the arts, specifically theater and dance, teaches kids the vital life skills of teamwork, awareness, creative thinking, poise, confidence and empathy.
Ovation Theatre was formed by the McCords to be able to provide more performance opportunities to the youth in our community. Their plans for the future include:
* Producing full scale shows
* Evenings of vocal and dance performances
*Formation of a performance troupe to do outreach entertainment at civic affairs, retirement homes, theatre festivals and charity events.
Ovation School gives several scholarships a year to students through partnership programs with our school system and other charitable organizations and we wish to be able to provide even more financial assistance to qualified students throughout the year through our non - profit ,Ovation Theatre Inc.
All of these activities are time consuming and expensive and this is where you come in . What are the ways that you can help us to continue and achieve these goals?
* Become a private donor and make a tax deductible donation. It is getting close to the end of the year so if you need to have a tax write off we will make sure your donation is put to good use.
*Become a Business Sponsor
* Fund raising
* Grant writing
* Tell a friend. Our greatest resource has been word of mouth. If you have a child already participating at Ovation School, invite others to look us up and become aware of who we are and what we do.
We look forward to having you join our Ovation community !
