History

Baby Feet

Laughing Feet Performers evolved out of a social mentoring group in the Wichita Public Schools and surrounding communities started by Valerie Wall that held a variety show each year (the first was in 2007 at Maize High School). We formed some great relationships with each other as we got together once a year to put on skits, dance and sing, but when performers graduated from high school they were no longer eligible to be in the productions.

In 2010, Laughing Feet Performers was created to make sure that performance opportunities continued for special needs performers long after they graduated from high school. Laughing Feet´s inaugural production, No Small Feat was performed in March of 2011 at Century II's Mary Jane Teall Theatre, and it became an official non-profit in July of 2012. Without Val's vision, none of this would have been possible.
