Who We Are

VisionsForConfidence (V4C) is a non-profit performing arts organization co-founded by Madeleine Chen and Elizabeth Echt, two rising sophomores at The Hockaday School in Dallas, Texas. Madeleine, an accomplished and elite dancer with The Dallas Conservatory, has won various prestigious dance awards, such as YAGP Junior Contemporary 2nd Place, and has competed in competitions all across the US. She even became a World Finalist this past spring! Elizabeth is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist who has recently started publishing music on Spotify, where she has gained over 50k followers, and she has also performed in various events across Texas.

Our co-founders have dedicated their passion to V4C to provide scholarships supporting the talented young artists with financial needs to pursue continued art training. V4C also provides financial support and works with children who have special needs, introducing them to a world of Performing Arts that they have never had prior access to. By giving these children newfound confidence in their abilities through our funding and support, V4C helps them establish a pathway to a successful future. At V4C, our team is not only invested in teaching students the arts, but we are also invested in their futures. We hope to provide lasting impacts and create bonds with each child that we work with.


V4C raises funds through teaching dance and singing, donations and various community fundraising activities. We welcome continued donations from our loving communities. With your donation and our funds, we inspire the young artists to further progress in the arts and equip the special-need children with the skills that will help them throughout their lives.
