With so many cut in art education programs limiting the access for many youth to be creative many aspiring art students are taking matter into their own hands. What's more important is the lack of attention these cut put on the long-term adverse affects on children, the people they become and the community they will one day inhabit as adults.
Its fact that the study of music, theatre, and other forms of art have been shown to stimulate other parts of student’s minds and even keep them out of gangs and other harmful situations. Statistics from a nationwide survey by the Gallup organization show that, “95% percent of Americans believe that music is a key-component in a child’s well-rounded education, 80% percent of respondents agreed that music makes the participants smarter; 78% believe that learning a musical instrument helps students perform better in other subject areas; and 88% believe participation in music helps teach children discipline.
The TWP (Tone Williams Project) is all set to take on such challenges with the use of dance. The Tone Williams Project (TWP) is an innovative dance movement established in Toronto, Canada in 2011. In the summer of 2013, TWP expanded to Buffalo, NY. Both groups are trained in a modern and distinctive blend of dance styles. Our mission is not only to showcase our dancers, but to show our ever growing audience that dance is more than movement; it is a lifestyle and an attitude one must embrace. United by their passion and drive, the TWP dancers were created and transformed into the performers they are today.
TWP states "We strive to entertain, as we let you take a glance at our vision of what dance should be. The company is thriving and looking for new opportunities to continue its rapid growth"
TWP has already begun hosting mini dance workshops in Buffalo for area Youth and adults.
