- Our kids and volunteers are taught to work as an ensemble and to think on their feet.

- Our classes and productions provide real life skills that can assist students in whatever later life path they may choose.

- We teach kids to have a greater sense of confidence and self esteem, as well as building  inter-personal communication skills and an understanding that anything is possible with enough hard work, focus, and dedication.


-We believe in the power of community, and seek to involve participants of all ages in an effort to bridge generations through the arts.  We give back, whenever and however we can. 

- We encourage our kids to reach for the stars.  Our educational philosophy is: "The Sky's The Limit."
