Aubrey Lynch Extra Essential Arts AL-EEArts Dream Leap Project
“The arts aren’t extracurricular; they’re extra-essential.” ® ~Aubrey Lynch II
In 2008 Aubrey Lynch said, “I hope to one day do for the world what I did for Lion King, especially children.” Those of you who worked on one of the fourteen Lion King productions around the world under his tutelage knows what he means.
The mission of AL-EEArts is to nurture the creative talents and aspirations of young performers and provide opportunities for children and adults to attain their highest level of excellence through artistic expression and commitment.
The Dream Leap Project seeks to raise $25,000 for AL-EEArts training program tuition and scholarships to subsidize the highest level of elite training programs and schools. Launching September 8, 2015 and running through September 21, 2015 the Indiegogo campaign will fund the 2015/2016 scholarships offering 25 talented artists the opportunity to participate in AL-EEArts programs and get the training they need to make their dreams leap. Please support these training programs and the AL-EEArts performance ensemble and be on the lookout for the Indiegogo campaign.
