The Southwest Key Latino Arts Preservation Program provides free after school classes that focus on the traditional Mexican arts of Ballet Folklorico, Mariachi music, and Bilingual Theater. The program reflects the overwhelming ethnic makeup of the East Austin community. Students receive a dynamic performing arts curriculum that features musical performance, theatrical scene, play performances, and dance.
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
