Jan 13 Saturday
For the past fourteen years Inspire School of Arts & Sciences has held an annual school-wide gala, where students and staff showcase their classwork and extracurricular activities to the community. This year, entitled “Take Space, Make Space”, our gala will not only showcase students’ performance work but will invite community members to learn what it’s like to be an Inspire student and even feel like one. The event will extend beyond the two performances on January 13th, there will be displays of work from an eclectic list of classes, interactive booths, and club presentations inviting community members to take part in the educational experiences that happen every day at Inspire.
There will be a Q & A panel directed at potential new Inspire students, where current Inspire students will answer questions on stage asked live by audience members, allowing prospective Inspire students and families the ability to hear about the school from the people who know it best, our students.
Between the two performance times, the Gala will have the entire lobby displayed with student work from numerous classes. Clubs, classes, and performance groups will display and present work at booths and with interactive demonstrations. We will also have food trucks and desserts available for people to enjoy, whether coming out of the 2:00 PM performance or going into the 7:00 PM.
This entire event is open to the public and all activities are family-friendly. Make it a family night, come get Inspired, and see what our school is all about.
