Merrimack Hall is home to the Johnny Stallings Arts Program, which provides arts education to individuals with special needs through classes like Dance Your Dreams!, Project UP, Inspired HeARTs and Camp Merrimack. Since the program launched in 2008, Merrimack Hall has held an annual spring recital to celebrate the achievements of these precious students. All students in Dance Your Dreams! and Project UP perform in this afternoon celebration. These children and teens live with a variety of challenges, including Down syndrome, cerebal palsy, autism, cancer and more. Each student is assisted by a coach who commits one year to volunteering in the program. The recital is also a major fundraiser for the following year’s program - a chance for the public and supporters to give back while also showing support for these incredible performers. The recital also recognizes citizens with the annual Dream Big! Award. These winners, just like our students, have followed their own dreams despite the challenges they faced. All proceeds from the recital directly benefit the 2012-13 Johnny Stallings Arts Program classes.
