On Thursday October 8th, our 6th grade middle school classes at Southwest Key’s East Austin College Prep Academy, had the opportunity to talk to, listen and learn from one of the premiere dancers from the world of dance. We were honored to host Ms. Hope Boykin, a dancer with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.


The inspirational Ms. Hope Boykin, who is a three-time recipient of the American Dance Festival’s Young Tuition Scholarship, spent time putting our 6th grade students through their dance paces, right here in East Austin. She also took the time to answer questions the students had prepared, and shared her life lessons with them.

Thank you Ms. Hope Boykin for taking the time to come out and enrich our students lives!

Exposing our students to the visual and performing arts is just one of the ways our innovative school is transforming the face of education in East Austin.
