When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, FoAT had to stop all of our programs, but we found a way to keep our mission alive and be present in the lives of our seniors by transitioning to Zoom programs. We provided critical emotional support when our older adult population was vulnerable and isolated.
This year we came back to in person programs. We doubled our classes and provided special performances and DJ services to celebrate with our seniors at their parties.
We also successfully collaborated with a great Latino nonprofit "Mexico Beyond Mariachi" to offer cultural workshops on the music, dance and traditions of Mexico to our seniors.
We are grateful to our generous family of donors who supported us in rebuilding this year.
Our growth plans for 2023 include
Restarting our Tango classes for all audiences
Creating and recording a series of public lectures with the living legends of Argentine Tango.
This holiday season, please help us continue to serve our older adults - specially our Latino communities with a year-end donation to FoAT. Every dollar you donate helps us to continue the labor of love of our dedicated teaching artists.
Wishing you a happy and healthy new year ahead,
Walter & Leo
