Participation in the arts has been shown to improve a child’s self esteem and emotional regulation, giving them a medium to safely express themselves. It has also been shown to bolster their academic success. The best part about Arts in Action is that it offers all of this to your child with the added benefit of spiritual growth.
My daughter is starting her fourth year of dance at Arts and Action, and I have been amazed by her technical advancement as well as the growth in her self confidence. She has found amazing role models here in the instructors and other dancers alike, and I cannot imagine a better place for my little ballerina to pursue her passion
Dr. Lauren Thompson, Pediatrician
We originally chose arts in Action because it provided any different options for arts education to accommodate all of our children, and the availability for them to take different classes at the same time worked perfectly with our schedule. We have continued our children’s art education at Arts in Action or five years now because of their exceptional instructors and programs that are Christ centered. We are extremely grateful for the opportunities our children have had at Arts in Action
