We believe in building long-term relationships with our Teaching-Artists and investing in their personal development and individual talents to make them stronger educators and to maximize their contributions to our team.

We seek to achieve excellence in our programming. This goes for the content we teach, the people who teach it, the way we deliver it and the performances, films, and projects we make and share with parents and students.
