The Asante Children’s Theatre (ACT) was created in 1990 to foster feelings of empowerment and enable self-discovery through the performing arts. The ACT is a youth development organization and uses traditions of African American performing arts to inspire and educate the performers and community. Performers learn through dance, song, and storytelling to learn skills applicable to their roles in school, work, and society. The organization’s overarching goal is create a “Culture of Excellence” for its participants and ultimately empower the youth, enrich lives, strengthen bonds, and have a more vibrant community.
