The Creative Advantage Facebook page has been highlighting our amazing roster of Community Arts Partners for Arts Education Week. One of the partners highlighted is Extraordinary Futures.
Founded by members of Seattle’s own world champ breakdance crew Massive Monkees, Extraordinary Futures is an innovative non-profit organization that has “created the nation’s first dance-based leadership program focused on urban youth with limited access to arts education and quality mentorship. Their fun, unique, and engaging arts based programs empower urban youth to lead healthier lifestyles and to realize their full potential as leaders. With nearly a decade of experience mentoring youth as teaching artists, the Extraordinary Futures team brings a unique formula for using art to develop leadership capacity in urban youth.”
About the roster:
The Community Arts Partner Roster is a vetted list of teaching artists and community arts and culture organizations approved to work in Seattle Public Schools through the Creative Advantage. Schools, community agencies, and other public and private entities are encouraged to access this list when seeking partners to lead creative learning opportunities with their program participants
