Being a native of New Orleans and knowing the problems that
our kids face today, Curtis has adopted the same philosophy of the samba schools in Brasil in
taking a social responsibility for safeguarding our children and providing them with creative and
challenging opportunities and experiences other than what is found in the streets. It is our
desire to provide a venue for getting the community, specifically children and young adults
interested in music and dance. It is important to provide them with a safe
place to participate in supervised and structured activities like after school, weekends and
during the summer months.
