After-School All-Stars kids hit the stage at The Springs Preserve on May 7
WHAT: More than 750 low-income and disadvantaged students from 13 local elementary and middle schools will take the stage to perform a variety of music and dance numbers during the 11th annual All-Star Showcase at the Springs Preserve. Throughout the school year, these After-School All-Stars Las Vegas (ASAS) students work hard during the after school hours, typically peak hours for juvenile crime and other delinquent behaviors, to prepare their performances. Scheduled performances include mariachi band; choir; hip hop; cheer; karate; ballet folklorico and much more.
All-Star Showcase is not only a celebration of the students’ achievements in the performing arts; it is a celebration of staying in school and making positive choices. Today, there are more than 100,000 K-12 youth in Nevada who are responsible for taking care of themselves after school.
