Great article! DWSA gives our youth who are interested in the Arts an outlet to express themselves while nurturing their talents! I have seen these children blossom over the years! Some come in not knowing how to play an instrument at all and end up like this! As a parent of children attending the school this school is an asset to the children and community offering Broadway worthy shows to the community at an affordable price ! Please support this school and it’s leader by expressing how much you enjoy the children and how this school is needed in the community!
