Roots & Rhythms classes are offered in select Austin ISD campuses throughout the academic year at no cost to students. Fee based, one-time, and multi-part workshops can be arranged throughout the year for your school, camp, church group, or other organization.
The Roots & Rhythms project is funded and supported in part by the City of Austin through the Cultural Arts Division and by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts; by the Austin Community Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, fostering philanthropy for the good of our community; and through partnership with The Boys and Girls Club of the Austin Area, inspiring and enabling all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.
Roots & Rhythms is a cultural arts and music education program fostering positive ties to local communities.
“...a gift for engaging children and bringing out the best in them regardless of their challenges.”
