Background & Funding Partner


The Bloom Arts Foundation is a non-profit organization that grew out of the community relationships formed by the Bloom School of Music and Dance (BSMD) in Eagle Rock. For over a decade, BSMD has brought music and dance to life for 6,000 students and counting. It is the most recommended music and dance school in northeast Los Angeles.

The desire to provide the same wonderful music and dance classes taught at BSMD to children across LA who lack access to an arts education led to the creation of BAF. BSMD donated the seed money to create BAF and became its Funding Partner with a generous annual pledge. Learn more about BSMD.

Before the Covid-19 pandemic BSMD successfully provided reduced-rate music classes to high-need schools and youth organizations. This success, and requests from even more schools to join, led to the creation of the Bloom Arts Foundation to meet this growing demand for arts education in underprivileged communities. The need is tremendous and we are grateful to our generous donors, dedicated partners, passionate educators, tireless volunteers, and community advocates for helping us reach more and more students each day. It is because of your support that we can truly see Arts Equity In Motion.
