“We could not be prouder of everything our students accomplished during the last session. Their talent, dedication, and creative minds continue to inspire us daily. We’re thrilled to welcome back some instructors that will be offering classes not featured since before COVID and have been widely enjoyed by youth of all ages in the past! As our programs continue to grow to full capacity, we thank our instructors, students, and the community for continuing to support us and allowing us to fulfill our mission. We hope that between our students being able to enroll in more classes and more class opportunities to choose from that they find their calling in one of our departments, whether it be Art, Dance, Music, Theater, or Creative Enrichment,” says Ryan Flores, Operations and Programs Manager.
