Hi, I’m Alex. Welcome to my non-profit organization. We promote access to the arts for people with disabilities through an integrated arts community model. We provide special experiences to premier Broadway shows, and are moving to develop workshops and performance opportunities in art, music and theater where individuals with disabilities are able to shine.
