LTAPA (Lansing Theater & Performing Arts Booster Club) was founded in 1995. Its purpose is to ensure that every child in the Lansing Central School District has the opportunity to benefit from participating in the performing arts - an important but often underemphasized and poorly supported component of a well-rounded education.
Children who participate in artistic activities gain confidence, improve their ability to focus on their individual efforts and to work in teams, and hone important academic skills such as reading comprehension, written and oral expression, and quantitative understanding.
Since its founding, LTAPA has supported the performing arts at Lansing's schools through:
- Provision of scholarships to students active in the performing arts
- Purchase and donation of important supplies - sound and lighting equipment, seating for the orchestra pit, concert apparel, a piano, audiovisual equipment, etc.
- Financial support for field trips, which broaden participating students' horizons and foster lasting memories
Every year, hundreds of Lansing students participate in vocal and instrumental music and theatrical performances. Your support will help ensure that no interested student is excluded because of their families' financial situations. Thank you!
