K-8 Class

Just like kids need good nutrition on a daily basis, they need frequent servings of the arts - but so few get enough! Much more than fun "extra" activities, dance, theater, and music have far-reaching benefits for kids' self-esteem, confidence, concentration, critical thinking, problem solving skills, communication, compassion, cooperation with peers, and even academic performance and test scores. Kids' active participation in the arts is closely linked to all the important life skills parents want for their children. We also know that the arts are the great equalizer: kids who struggle in school often discover in our studios that they excel in nonverbal communication, and can gain a sense of accomplishment unmatched in their day-to-day experiences. So we provide classes that maximize kids' social and emotional development while introducing them to dance, theater, and music, instilling a lifelong love for the arts, and sending kids home with huge smiles on their expressive faces.
