This is not your typical “sit and watch” type of assembly program.
   My programs are uplifting, energetic, and appropriate for every age group and fully customizable.  Best for school assembly groups Pre-K through 8th grade. 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 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.
