Our team of educators works collaboratively to build comprehensive, engaging curriculums that complement each other, following a common curricular theme each term which aims to connect all students to each other and the world around them.
Classes for ages 13 and under culminate in informal performances, called “shares”, at the end of each term. Shares are presented in studios and solely for family members and friends in order to create a supportive and comforting environment to celebrate each student’s creativity, growth and achievements.
Arts Discovery Program
Ages 18 months-13 years
Offering students the opportunity to explore multiple art forms while awakening curiosity, the Arts Discovery program provides a well-rounded foundation for creative exploration.
Creative Connections Program
Explore the arts through music, dance, theatre, poetry, and more every Saturday morning in this innovative arts education program with SOTA faculty and special guest artists!
Guiding students of all levels, ages, and abilities to develop physical coordination and creative expression, our dance education program draws upon the dance traditions of jazz, contemporary, modern, ballet, hip hop, musical theater, and more!
The Music Program at SOTA is unique, as it offers an exploratory approach towards music-making. Creativity and curiosity are guiding forces, as children of all ages and skill levels gather to deepen their experience with music and sound. Individual skill development and inclusive ensemble building are equally important as we explore and celebrate the joys of music.
An interdisciplinary and holistic approach to theatre-making, acting technique, and a wide range of specialized theatre skills, our theatre program focuses on inclusive and intentional theatre-making that is culturally and socially responsive.
Classes for Adults
NEW in January 2022, our adult classes provide both young and senior adults the opportunity to develop their creative and artistic selves. From theatre to choir, dance to music history, our classes are open to all levels and encourage joy and discovery through the performing arts.
