Our Mission

Mission:

Ink Cares is built upon the foundation and scientific research that the arts can enrich lives, help communities to thrive, improve students’ abilities to absorb academics, make neighborhoods healthier and stronger, and cross ethnic, racial, gender, and age barriers.

Vision:

Through the five pillars of Ink Cares, we strive to leave a positive mark on the lives of those of which we are fortunate enough to cross paths.

Through Dance Ink and Ink University, we teach our students to have an openness to critical thinking and an exchange of ideas, to respect diversity through thought and being, and to have a commitment to excellence through professionalism, athleticism, hard work and self-discipline.  We teach mindfulness and wellbeing, as well as use multimedia and technology, to ensure our students have a chance of great success in this ever-changing world.  

Through our professional companies (Ink Productions and Ink Factory), community outreach, and our associates, we practice all of what we preach to produce world class performances, develop the skills and footprints of our associates, and be increasingly involved in providing solutions and impact for the needs of our surrounding communities.
