WHAT MAKES ASASE YAA UNIQUE?

The School of the Arts was founded in 2010 with the mission to provide quality dance and drum instruction to boys and girls students ages 3 to 18. Through intensive study and technical training in various dance forms that include tap, jazz, ballet, hip hop, modern, and African, students become well versed in their genre over the course of the 37 week program (which typically runs from October to June).
The School offers two major youth programs annually in addition to the classes and regular curriculum they offer in public, charter, and public schools.
