Train Up a Child in the Way they Should Go....and when they are Old, it will not depart from them.

It's no secret that Prince George's County breeds some of the most brilliant, talented and exceptional people...we see them out in the World, on screen, in our communities, a part of our family and inner circle. It is a unique location, Prince George's...that rests just outside of the Washington DC city limits where opportunities to work in the U.S. government are provided to families of Color and diverse backgrounds--educated, qualified, hardworking, committed and connect.

Prince George's Community College, Center for Performing Arts NOW OPEN!


Dancer, Daniel Harder, AAADT

Suitland High School VPA Alumni

Prince George's County is the most affluent Black county in the nation, on record. Even more than Dallas, TX or parts of California and New York. What we have here is special. It is something to be proud of, to aspire to and beyond and certain past on the legacy of Excellence that proceeds our community.

And have our ancestors, grandparents and parents to thank for making the decision, striving for a better life during the Great Migration, to come from all parts of the South and Midwest to be here.

Yes, these are exceptional people. And we know them! That is why we are #PGCPROUD to put them in the spotlight of our performing arts community.

Learn about them, what they do and who they are.

We are all a Family....and we always will be. No matter where in the World we may ROAM.

There are many. But here are of few, that we are celebrating today!

During an interview with VoyageLA Magazine, she tells them...

"Originally I am from Prince Georges County, Maryland. I grew up known as “the tap dancer”. I mean I literally tap danced down the hallways in school, at talent shows, and in every room in the house (including the bathroom). Dance was such a huge part of my life..."
