Until the summer of 2013, Elation Center for the Arts served the people of the southwest region of the USA and beyond by cultivating an appreciation for the arts. ECA offered life enrichment programs focused on preserving our cultural heritage. These programs included community concerts; music assemblies and performance residencies for schools; performance opportunities for accomplished and aspiring artists; and classes in the arts for students of all ages and backgrounds. Concert proceeds helped support these programs.
Paul and Carla Roberts
Elation’s program directors, Carla and Paul Roberts, use international folk dance and music as a basis for new explorations in the performing arts. The Roberts have devoted themselves to the cultural enrichment of children for over 20 years.
Their school assemblies and performing arts residencies are popular throughout the Southwestern US.
Help Us Serve
ECA welcomed volunteer involvement. Our volunteers helped set up and clean up before, during, and after events, gave us invaluable advice and assistance, and gave of their time and expertise in many ways. We couldn't do it without you!
