ABOUT US: The Metropolitan Arts Collaborative (MetroArtsCo), a nonprofit tax exempt educational arts organization, was founded by Virginia B. Britton, Martin Petersilia, Sivia B. Foster, and supported by Tina L. B. Thomas, Eddie Arnold, Bess Sussman, and other contributors and volunteers.


The MISSION of MetroArtsCo is to support collaborative artistic activities as a means of providing community enriching opportunities and broadening access for diverse and inclusive groups and organizations.
  
MetroArtsCo brings arts to low and middle income children, teenagers and senior citizens who would not otherwise have an opportunity to participate and perform in arts activities.
 
MetroArtsCo fundraises to create scholarships, grants and programs without charge or low cost to participants.   
MetroArtsCo collaborates with schools, churches and recreation departments. In addition MetroArtsCo teaches dance classes in their private dance studio in 
​Alexandria, Virginia. MetroArtsCo also collaborates with dance academies and dance studios located in Alexandria, Virginia and the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. MetroArtsCo also collaborates with private service organizations that make their facilities available to charitable and nonprofit organizations through out the Washington D.C. metropolitan area.
