The mission of The Laughing Feet Performers is to inspire relationships between individuals with special needs and their typical peers through musical and artistic expression as well as give performance opportunities to those who would normally not have them.

Video Promotes Laughing Feet
Laughing Feet has a promotional video! Created by Paul and Kari Russell at Maple Ridge Productions, this video is designed specifically to let people know what Laughing Feet is all about. "Maple Ridge spent countless hours working closely with me to make sure it was absolutely perfect," said Jenny Mitchell, Executive Director. "This video incorporates footage from our performance at the National SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management) Conference and interviews with several board members, parents and participants. It does a perfect job of showing what we do best -- having fun! I really love that a person who had no previous exposure to special needs put this together. Kari picked things that spoke to her, things we hope will encourage people to get involved." Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible!
