OUR PHILOSOPHY
THE STUDIO focuses on training and skill-development.
We understand that the need to take classes that develop skills is essential for young artists that dream of a career path in the arts. Even for those that do not pursue a career in the arts, building skills through these types of classes will completely set students apart from their peers in auditions and interviews throughout their artistic endeavors.

We take a process over product approach to our curriculum, working on technique and skills as the primary emphasis.  Performance opportunities exist in each class as an opportunity to showcase technique but this is not the primary focus.

We are one of the only programs in the region that focuses primarily on building skills and providing training that pushes students to grow as artists.
