Younts Center for Performing Arts (formerlyThe Fountain Inn Center for Visual and Performing Arts) carries new life within its walls – students in an art class learn the intricacies of pottery or watercolor, a rehearsal prepares the cast for an upcoming production, and young dancers take those first hesitant steps toward the stage.

The center’s list of available activities is growing by leaps and bounds, with its arts academy as the newest entry in the Fountain Inn cultural arts scene.

Fountain Inn’s Economic Development and Younts Center Director Van Broad said after offering summer programs, the academy will continue with classes after school.

“There will be a variety of arts classes like dance, music and pottery,” he said. “We are limited, so we aren’t competing with arts studios or day cares. We want to whet the appetite of young people to learn about the arts and be involved.”

Cindy Mixon is one of Fountain Inn’s newest residents, but she is busy recruiting others for downtown, small-city life.

Whether their families have called it home for generations or they just moved to a historic house in town, Fountain Inn’s residents and business owners find themselves part of a family that prides itself on both tradition and progress.

Mixon came to Fountain Inn by way of the stage.

“I really came via The Center for Visual and Performing Arts and the theatre company, FIRE,” she said. “A friend of mine, Anita Sleeman, is the artistic director.”
