Performing Arts and Wellness
The Paige Fraser Foundation (TPFF) was established in 2017 with Lesmah J. Fraser as Founder, President/CEO and Paige Fraser as Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer/ Program Director for Dance.
TPFF aims to create a safe space for aspiring young artists, with or without disabilities, to reach their full potential in Dance, Music, Theater and the Visual Arts.
TPFF collaborates and partners with other Bronx community-based organizations and is committed to creating a broad community of partners and supporters to spread kindness and hope to youths, families and the community through the arts with a goal to build a Performing Arts and Wellness Center in the Northeast Bronx.
TPFF is a 501(c)(3) committed to inspiring young emerging artists with or without physical challenges to reach their full potential by establishing a Performing Arts Center and facilitate a safe space for inner-city youths to study Dance, Theater, Music, Art and Writing.
Our vision is to raise awareness about the arts through performance and presentation; to provide a safe space for training and personal and professional development; to offer opportunities for youth to practice the arts to achieve their life goals; to mentor and coach youth as they strive for their goals inside and outside of the arts; to develop a network of committed partners, allies, and friends to create community-based arts programs; to use and leverage technology to expand exposure to the arts
Our values include respect, integrity, ethics, stewardship and commitment to diversity
