Dante has been part of the Brave Arts family since he was 11 years old. The supportive community Brave Arts provides has kept him coming back year after year. Dante cannot express how grateful he is to Keith, Sarah, Dan, and all of the other leaders for providing unconditional support for people of all walks of life in this program. The constant encouragement for everyone to take personal risks in a non-competitive environment is done in a way Dante has not seen at any other program. One of Dante’s favorite memories was playing Conrad Birdie in Bye Bye, Birdie in Open Fields during his 8th grade year. He has found some of his life-long best friends at Brave Arts and always looks forward to spending the summer together. Dante graduated from Walnut Hill School for the Arts as a Theatre major in 2021 and will be attending Penn State University pursuing a BFA in Musical Theatre.
