In support of Autism Awareness Month, Metropolitan School of the Arts is asking all of its studio students to "go blue" now through April 30. Students who wear blue during class, Monday through Friday in April, Metropolitan School of the Arts will donate $1 for each student that wears blue, per day. Go to www.metropolitanarts.org for a full schedule of classes and registration.
Metropolitan School of the Arts offers pre-professional dance, theatre, musical and vocal studio classes for youth and teens, as well as adult dance and fitness classes, including Metro Barre, yoga and Pilates.
"We know autism affects so many young lives and more research is needed to help treat and manage these amazing children," said Melissa Dobbs, president of Metropolitan School of the Arts of Lorton. "We invite our current and any new students to ‘go blue’ this month, whether it’s blue leotards, hair bands, shirts, scarves, shoes or pants, pick something that works for you and help us give back to a worthy cause," said Dobbs.
