"From Backstage to Center Stage: A Celebration of Access and Inclusion in the Arts" will be held on Friday, February 25th, 7:30pm, USF Theatre 1. This music-dance-theatre extravaganza will include dynamic performers that have worked with Arts4All Florida over the years for a reboot that will showcase dance, theatre and music performances by acclaimed artists, all who have a disability. This event is a collaboration with USF College of the Arts Professors Dr. Merry Lynn Morris/Dance and Dr. Clint Randles/Music and includes USF School of Dance and School of Music student performers.
With support through the the School of Theatre and Dance's Holloway Endowment, professional guest artists and USF dance students will perform together in an original work created by internationally acclaimed guest choreographer, Marc Brew.
Arts4All Florida celebrates 40 years as the leading resource on access and inclusion in the arts throughout the state. With a brief look back and full throttle forward, we honor our groundbreaking history and our ongoing commitment to deliver outstanding arts programming that is accessible to all.
We're remarkably different from that young organization founded in 1981. Still one of Florida's best kept secrets, our goal as we celebrate our 40th Anniversary, is to share monthly insights into the incredible rebranded nonprofit we've become and what we continue to offer to our communities.
Please join us on our website, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube as we post informative content that is sure to spark your interest!
Meet the visiting artists behind the scenes of From Backstage to Center Stage: A Celebration of 40 Years of Access and Inclusion in the Arts as we ready ourselves for their return to Tampa and Miami in February 2022. Each has not only an amazing portfolio of accomplished skill in their artistic endeavors but serve as leaders in their communities supporting disability rights and educational art initiatives. The honor is ours!!
