L.A.D.A. Students Making A Splash With Spring Musical

L.I.F.E. Adult Day Academy students are making a community connection and a big splash on the local arts scene with a beach-themed choral and dance program this coming Tuesday, April 9th, at the Arts United ArtsLab.

A school where learning is adapted to an individual's  unique skills, the academy's mission is to create an ideal place to learn, socialize, and find acceptance.
