Turnaround Arts Benefit
Turnaround Arts is a program that uses arts education as a tool to help turn around America's struggling schools. Turnaround Arts: Bridgeport consists of five schools: Barnum, Hall Hallen, Tisdale and Roosevelt.
We need to raise money to sustain our program.
Come out and meet our Turnaround Artist, Bernie Williams, a musician and former professional baseball player, and his Turnaround Kids. They performed at the Second Annual White House talent show and they will repeat that selection for you.
In addition, Dominique Kelley, originally from Bridgeport, will perform with Bennie Wallace , a tap dance/saxophone duet. Dominique Kelley has been named one of the most promising up and coming choreographers of his generation. Dominique will fuse rhythm patterns with classical movements to create a visual and aural experience.
Original artwork from Autumn DeForest, born in 2001, has painted since the age of 5, and was dubbed a child prodigy and an artistic genius in a special program produced by the Discovery Channel. Student artwork, guided by Autumn, will also be auctioned.
