“Performing with ArtWorks Academy has taught me to be dedicated, to work well with others, to be punctual, and how to think on my feet. I have gained a great amount of confidence and have developed some of my closest friendships throughout my six years at the studio. Without ArtWorks I would not be who I am today, and I am so glad to be able to call it my home.” – Mica M.
"We found ArtWorks Academy when my daughter's spirit had been broken at another theater and she came home saying she was done with the one thing she loved - performing. I called ArtWorks. The voice on the phone was warm, friendly, and understanding. She let my daughter join the Production Company class as part of the ensemble (even though auditions and parts were already set). I was unsure of what the outcome would be, but my daughter and I thought we should give this place a shot. ArtWorks has built my child's esteem and turned her into a better performer. She has been there for about 5 years now and stays involved all year long each year. All the kids in their theater classes are just as involved and on stage just as much as those with lead roles. They care about their kids and make sure the kids know they care. The environment at ArtWorks is amazing and the kids that go there all love it. They are a close-knit group and tend to be very close to the instructors as well. Which by the way this is a family run place that puts an emphasis on family, learning, and being accepted for who you are. We love ArtWorks! Thank you for all you do for the kids who attend your classes." ~ Jennifer P.
“My daughter has been involved with four theatres and ArtWorks Academy is hands down our favorite! We now live four hours away, but make the drive to perform here. We have taken private piano, private voice, Production Company, and ballet with ArtWorks Academy. The owners and staff are like none other. They are so genuine. They are lovely people with generous hearts. These kids are so blessed to have this company here!” ~ Liz S.
ArtWorks Academy gave me a home away from home. It was my safe place. It was what I looked forward to every day after school. Dance and theater gave me an outlet for my energy, my stress, my everything. It is the reason I am not afraid to speak up and be who I am. ~ Ashley B.
"My daughter has been at ArtWorks Academy since she was in the 1st Grade. She is now in 5th and I believe that ArtWorks has taught her so much more than just being in a musical. It has taught her how to be a leader in her school and given her the confidence to do things like Student Council, the talent show, and perform around town without fear. She loves attending ArtWorks and wakes up on those days excited about what she is going to learn when she gets there. My son has only been at ArtWorks Academy for a year in Senior Production Company and his favorite thing is the group of kids he gets to perform with. They are all so nice and talented." ~M'Leah T.
“My daughter has gained so much from her classes at ArtWorks. She has strengthened her dance skills, gained confidence in her performance abilities and increased her self-esteem and self-confidence. The staff is nurturing and supportive, while teaching students skills that they need to perform in the arts.” ~ Brooke M.
“ArtWorks Academy is such a great environment with wonderful teachers! I could see my progress as I came out of my shell in musical theater class!” ~ Eleanor T.
“They really are about finding your child's strengths, bringing them out and giving them opportunities to shine - all while teaching the arts in a fun, vibrant environment. I think each child feels like they have a family here.”
