The DAVE Project is a recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization that offers little-to-no-cost performing arts education for public school children, taught by active professional performers. Standing for Dedicated Artists for the Vitality of arts Education, The DAVE Project is inspired by the life of David Gorgone, his passion for music and theater, and his passion for people, The DAVE Project intends to continue the spirit of David’s life through the conception of a professional theater company in his name. This company exists with the aim of educating all who wish to learn about theater and music, but may not be able to achieve the desired level of education in their respective public schools due to budget constraints, and who may not be able to afford a school with a specialization in performing arts.
In David’s true spirit, we intend to promote the recognition of the importance of art as human beings, and the importance of people and friendships in our everyday lives. We also find it to be incredibly important to allow for an opportunity for education by practicing professionals, as this will give participants the greatest chance for success within the theater and music community.
