Vision / Purpose of Urban Dreams

Urban Dreams Music and Arts Program is integral because the youth in the DFW Metroplex are being exposed to all types of negativity especially the ones in the underprivileged areas. These young people need to know that there is more to the world than hanging on the streets, selling drugs, and gun violence. We need to put a little more emphasis on the arts and academics. Because the arts allow them to have a sense of imagination and putting an emphasis on increasing scholastic achievement prepares our youth for success during their college years and far beyond.


The youth in North Texas particularly the Dallas-Fort Worth area need a place where they are uplifted, a place where they can be mentored by the most elite artist, dancers, and musicians in the city, they need to be taught by the best instructors with premier educational and musical backgrounds. Furthermore, these students need a place to go where they can dream and watch their Urban Dreams turn into reality. That place is here with us at Urban Dreams Music and Arts Program.
