Core Values

  • Small Class Sizes allow instructors to give more individual attention to students. Thus, the quality of teaching improves and students are more likely to be attentive and participate in learning. 

  • Professionalism: Our classes are taught by professional teaching artists with the complementary skills and sensibilities of an educator, who engage people in learning experiences in, through, and about the arts. We maintain an environment that is safe, friendly, and fun!

  • Social Responsibility implies a broad range of efforts by individuals or groups to help others individually, locally or globally. These efforts may include activism for issues such as human rights, social justice, the environment, disaster relief and alleviating poverty. This may also refer to efforts for the health and welfare of persons in need such as those living with poverty, addiction, illness, abandonment, disabilities or other socially isolating conditions. Social responsibility implies that all processes used for these purposes will be a genuine benefit to the recipients, processes that are not imposed or forced, but created in conjunction with the recipients and with great respect and compassion.

  • Dynamic Culture We strive for excellence, realizing there is always room for improvement in everything we do.
