Founded on the belief that the arts play a vital role in fostering the creativity and self-confidence necessary to become a productive citizen, ArtSparks classrooms encourage children to develop discipline, a standard of excellence, and a belief in themselves that carries over into all aspects of their lives.
Through in-school partnerships, residencies, workshops, and public performances, ArtSparks is a non-profit organization that brings joyful dance and music programming to non-traditional arts participants and students with exceptionalities. Read more about what we do and why we do it:
Our Dynamite Duos program supports the collaboration of dancers with and without disabilities. Come see for yourself the teamwork, trust, and understanding that can blossom when children learn dance and music together!

"I'm thankful that I have great, kind teachers to teach me everything, and they don't move on unless everyone knows the steps."

"You have given our students the chance to learn a healthy lifestyle in a fun way. I hear them at recess singing and practicing the moves."
