Hope Street Honored by Invertigo Dance Theater

In September, Hope Street was honored by community partner, Invertigo Dance Theatre, at its Fall Soirée at the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Sowden House in Los Feliz. Invertigo Dance Theatre has partnered with Hope Street for four years to bring their dance education program, Invert/ED that values creative ownership, discovery, physical awareness, and interdisciplinary and kinesthetic learning.

Youth Center Education Coordinator, Gina Avila, and three youth center students accepted the award on behalf of Hope Street for its work in the community. We are deeply grateful to Invertigo Dance Theatre , and artistic director, Laura Karlin and company manager, Sadie Yarrington, for their ongoing collaboration and recognition in the community.

Brad Howe Art

World-renowned sculptor, Brad Howe, stopped by Hope Street in October to teach the students in our after-school program how to build and create their own mobiles using balance, counter-weights, and gravity. Mr. Howe showed how you can use every day and found items as part of your artwork to express themselves through your art.

AEG Halloween

Children from Hope Street’s preschool classes walked over to L.A. LIVE’s AEG and Herbalife offices to trick or treat with their staff. More than 70 children from Hope Street’s three Early Childhood Centers dressed up as super heroes, police officers and firefighters, princesses, and more participated with their parents and Hope Street staff.

Later at our after-school program, Hope Street youth got together for a fun Halloween Party with costumes, festive activities, and spooky snacks. Thank you to AEG and Herbalife for their generous hospitality in making this an unforgettable experience for our students.
