Into the Wild with NC Arts in Action was celebrated February 29 at the Nature Research Center. The evening honored the work of NC Arts in Action, its sponsors, and the success of the program. NC Arts in Action reaches more than 900 children in Wake County through dance and live music across fourth grade classrooms. Using dance, music and performance, the program instills self-esteem, perseverance and excellence in children. Through the generous support of individual sponsors, businesses, foundations and its partners such as the Wake County Public School System, NC Arts in Action continues to expand,  making an impact on the lives of more children every year.
