About Love in Action

Destiny Arts Center’s first winter recital took place 30 years ago.  Over the years, these showcases have brought together students to showcase their hard work.  Love in Action opens the door for families and communities to share in Destiny’s values: love, care, respect, responsibility, honor and peace. At this event, families get a chance to gather in one place to celebrate their children and the power of love both on the stage and in the lives of each student.
