The students at Pyramid, a day center for developmentally disabled adults, have been working diligently for months to present their upcoming showcase titled “SUMMER FUN”. Taking place on Sunday, July 16th, the event will feature song and dance routines as well as a showcase of student’s artwork. The event will be held at the University Area Community Center, 14013 North 22nd Street, Tampa, and is free and open to the public.
Doors open at 2:00pm and curtain at 3:00pm. Works of art will be available for purchase and proceeds will support the artists as well as the programs at Pyramid.
This year’s performance will also feature a theatrical piece taught to the students by Sarah Berland of the Patel Conservatory. Through a partnership with the conservatory, Pyramid received 16 weeks of theater classes.
Pyramid Incorporated, a 501C(3) corporation, was created in 1994 to serve 200 individuals, most of whom faced severe developmental barriers. Six centers now serve more than 700 adults representing a wide range of abilities, in five Florida cities: Tampa, Tallahassee (2), Fort Walton Beach, Panama City and Pensacola.
The organization remains committed to serving those with severe disabilities as it seeks new ways to engage its students, to provide an environment in which they can find excitement and meaning – and to provide them the opportunity to become full participants in their communities. Tampa Pyramid serves more than 150 individuals whose range of disabilities includes autism, cerebral palsy, Downs syndrome, cognitive impairment, Prater-Willi, spina bifida and traumatic brain injury.
