The arts is an incredible way for a child to develop their creativity and imagination. Music, Dance, and Theatre can easily open a child's mind. The Performing Arts give a child an opportunity to be creative, use their imagination, and learn ways to express themselves with their voices and bodies.
This year, the Axelrod Performing Arts Center has become a professional theatre with talented artistic staff who are leaders in their fields. Arts education programs at the Axelord include Rising Stars Youth Performing Arts, Youth Dance Education programs with the Axelrod Contemporary Ballet Theater, and Master Dance Classes taught by Broadway professionals.
In 2018 we are offering two new elite educational summer programs; A Midsummer Night's Dream Dance Intensive & a Summer Musical Theater Intensive. The curriculum consists of rigorous triple-threat training; they are designed to prepare students for the fast-paced and demanding schedule that is required in the professional world. During the programs, students will have the opportunity to meet and work with accomplished art professionals in their field.
