A Village Arts former student: I’m 15, and I joined Village Arts back in 2016. I did one musical “Fiddler on the Roof” two talent shows and one acting class there. I remember having so much fun doing all of this, from rehearsals for the musical to scenes in class, I was so happy to have the opportunity to have been a part of such a wonderful community. I live so close that when I drive by there I always smile because of how many times I had walked in there from watching friends’ performances to actually performing, I will forever gladly say Village Arts is a huge part of my childhood. Everyone there was and still is so welcoming and nice, and as someone that loves performing, I always enjoyed going there. I’m smiling as I write this because I remember the friends I already had there to the friends I made there, and it really feels especially amazing because of the fact they are right across the street so whenever I did stuff there it was always a breeze to drive there, never any stress. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to have been a part of this wonderful community and it’s genuinely such a happy environment.
