Help us keep Mt. Airy Performing Arts open!

Like all small businesses, we are struggling during this pandemic. We have lost so much already. We continue to forge ahead with classes continuing on Zoom, but we need your help! While many of our programs have been temporarily suspended, MAPA still offers classes in dance, theater and yoga for children, teens and adults. Please help us by donating today to keep these programs running.

In the past we have been able to subsidize less fortunate families through the generosity of our student community. With the ongoing pressures of Covid-19, many more of our families are struggling. Mt. Airy Performing Arts is committed to being here for our students, and to serving as many families as we can.  We look forward to welcoming students, old and new, back into our studios once this crisis is over .Now we are asking you, the community at large, to help us survive. 

What will your money be used for?
   To pay our rent, our utilities and our staff.

Who are we?
    Kim Williams, Artistic & Managing Director, has toured and danced professionally throughout the world and has been teaching dance, drama and creative arts in Philadelphia for over 30 years. In 2002, she created the Allens Lane Dance Program and in 2015, she opened Mt. Airy Performing Arts. She has been directing and choreographing grade school and high school musical productions throughout the Philadelphia area for many years. 

Why should you help?
    We work hard to fill in the arts gap that reduced school programming has created. Right now, especially, we offer children and adults a respite from the stress of the pandemic through dance, theater and yoga. Parents have commented that these dance classes offer their children a chance to move constructively, see their dance friends' faces and retain some sense of their "normal" schedules. 

"To educate, nurture and showcase the artistic talents of a diverse community through dance, theater, music and art."
- This is our mission. We desperately need your help to keep it going.

Thank you
