Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases. The quality, types and number of arts opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. A survey will be conducted in two ways. We will include a printed survey in each program and we will send an email to our patrons and families. All results will be compiled by our artistic director who is also overseeing this grant.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Yes, we achieved our planned outcomes. We used a survey and had 55 responses. We learned important things from it. Parents were fine with their younger dancers being in more performances. People love the Nicollet theater for performances, but don't like to drive there.
