THE ARTS IMPACT LIVES & INSPIRE THE HUMAN SPIRIT

Supporting Charlotte’s Youth Through The Performing Arts

Inspire the Fire Inc., is a non-profit organization committed to helping young people succeed on stage and in life. We provide students aged 10 – 19 years artistic development, life skill and community engagement coaching. We want to see our kids leave us with confidence, ambition and genuine excitement for what their futures hold. Inspire the Fire was an America’s Got Talent Season 7 Finalist, chosen as “Community Group of the Year” by Charlotte Leadership, and selected by Oprah Winfrey to perform at Maya Angelou’s memorial service. We were also honored with an “Inspire the Fire Day” by four Charlotte Mayors.

COVID + Xperience

We are incredibly committed to the health and safety of our team, our students and our community. North Carolina is currently in Phase 2 of a gradual reopening of the state.

From the beginning of this process, we knew our phased reopening would directly mirror that of the state’s. While we will always be in accordance with state and local mandates, our reopening is an evolving process that could change day by day while continuing to respond to the needs of our community. We continue to evaluate outdoor areas for future in-person activities. We are committed to keeping you informed. We realize this is a time of rapid change, and we hope to resume full operations soon. Your safety and that of our community is very important to us!

We are excited launch the 2020 Xperience! Learn from our coaches through our new platform!  Attend Life Class & Club via Zoom! Audition for our upcoming visuals! Please continue to visit this website and social media channels to stay updated with our ongoing openings for all.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

“Music is my passion,

so I loved that ITF used it and the other arts to inspire young professionals to be better and go for more in their lives. It’s amazing to see not only the talent develop in these kids, but their confidence and life skills. And after meeting Dennis and the kids, I knew I had to get involved.”
