-Why was my teacher replaced?

Our teaching artists are all industry professionals who are actively working in their field. Because they are so incredible and highly regarded, there may be instances where we need to replace a teaching artist who has been announced for a class, in which case, we will replace the teacher with a replacement of equal wonderfulness and experience. 

 

-What are the benefits of arts education?

We believe that art education not only brings you the skills to perform, but also the skills to lead a successful life.  Along with scene analysis, improv class or ballet technique, you are also learning communication and verbal articulation skills. The arts train discipline and instill the importance of collaboration and working in a team. Public speaking skills, critical thinking skills and literacy skills are all enhanced by this training. Whether you are pursuing or planning on pursuing a career in the arts or not, the benefits of early arts education will be many!
