"Every program that we offer and teach has the possibility of earning college scholarships, if the student enters the programs early enough to aquire the proper level of skill ability. That is why we are selective about our teachers who teach the classes, the syllabi we follow and the levels we offer. Not all programs can say that!"
Our Programs Are A Great Supplement To Your Homeschool Program!
We believe in the value of arts based learning, and our philosophy and values make our programs a great choice for all. We offer the opportunity to learn in a positive environment that teaches the great values of cooperation, camaraderie, respect, compassion,and integrity.
Dance is a great class for fitness and grace! Students of all ages and both gender can greatly benefit from a dance class. Dance allows a student to explore fully the magnificent movements that body can perform. Self esteem and confidence are always a benefit of a dance class. But did you know that the right dance classes and teachers also offer a bit of history, math and science?
Choreography for dance is all age appropriate and up to date by industry standards. We follow a set syllabus that is recognized by dance departments of universities, so that proper learning can be achieved by all students. The small class sizes allow for a wonderful learning environment that enables the teachers to spot problems in technique before they become habits.
Costumes for our spring shows are also age appropriate and are selected on the basis of helping every young performer to look wonderful on stage no matter their age, shape or size. Music is carefully selected to meet the needs of the students and not the teachers. The music is scrutinized to be sure our students are only subjected to wonderful, creative, fun and uplifting musical arrangements to work with. Great care is used to filter out language in lyrics that is improper.
Our music program is taught by university trained teachers that know and understand music theory. Classes are documented as far as attendance and time in class for reporting purposes. The majority of our classes are private, although we do offer group classes in Keyboard and Guitar. So, if you are looking for music instruction, this is the place to be! From piano and voice to trumpet and saxophone, we can help your child achieve their dreams of being a musician. We even have teachers who are interested in starting a small home school band, so give us a call today!
