To provide a safe environment and creative outlet for South Florida's youth.
From the choir to dance recitals and roles in off-Broadway productions,
Kyla Maull, Georgette "Gigi" Belton and Nicole "Nikki" Nelson are no strangers to the stage.
Growing up in New York City, their entire childhood was spent dancing, singing and acting.
Upon relocation to South Florida it was important for Kyla to expose her daughter to the world of the performing arts.
However after a failed search for an affordable program, she realized that such an outlet, in South Florida, didn’t exist.
Rather than give up, Kyla enlisted the help of Gigi and Nikki, and together, envisioned a place where talented youth
could creatively express themselves within a safe environment.
This place would be accessible to all young people interested in the performing arts, regardless of family income.
In 2006, Encore Performing Arts Center Inc. was born.
Encore Performing Arts Center Inc. is a non-profit organization committed to providing a safe environment
and creative outlet for South Florida’s youth.
In 2007, Tiffany Booker joined ENCORE as a volunteer.
Some say she started singing before she could speak so it was no surprise when she came on board as Vocal Coach in 2009.
In 2018, Kyla departed from the organization to pursue other endeavors but her impact is everlasting.
Seeking passionate and dedicated youth, every year, the leaders of ENCORE take great pride
in grooming young people to become future stars as well as helping them build self-esteem, overcome shyness,
increase academic scores and most of all build and sustain new relationships within a diverse environment.
The entire team at Encore sincerely appreciates the tremendous community support, which continues to help keep ENCORE alive.
