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:
ArtSparks Virtual Performance
ArtSparks dancers from Team TNT and XD worked extremely hard during our 2020 Virtual Summer Workshop. Students may not have been able to perform at some of their favorite venues like Festa Italiana of Cuyahoga Falls, Cuyahoga Falls Farmer's Market, Summit StageFest, and Kent Creativity Festival but they surely brought the energy by dancing anywhere they could! Enjoy our performance in the video below of "You Can Dance ANYWHERE"!
"I was amazed at how well the instructors crafted their dance lessons, so that every minute was well planned and exciting for the children."
~ Ellen M Stahl, Cleveland Municiple Schools
"I'm thankful that I have great, kind teachers to teach me everything, and they don't move on unless everyone knows the steps."
~ Olivia, Lincoln Elementary student
"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."
~ Mary Breiding, Akron Public Schools
