Hear from our young artists about how the East Bay Center has transformed their lives through performing arts education.


A Story of New-Found Confidence

“When I first came here and had my first few performances I could not look at the audience, I just kept looking at the floor. Now that it’s been my forth year here I can look anybody in the eye with confidence. Taking classes here at the center has really helped me grow out of my shy shell, because when I first came here I did not speak to anyone at all, I just kept to myself. The center has really helped me become more out going.”

– Fahm, East Bay Center Alum
