Founded in 2004 to provide a quality performing arts education that is accessible to children and teens of all demographics, all levels of ability, from the professional child actor to the extremely shy teenager that just wants to try something new.

As a result, the students who go through the program have discovered more than a gift in the arts; they have discovered security and confidence in themselves as individuals. Ovation currently meets twice a week, on Mondays & Wednesdays from 4:00 to 6:15 PM. We have 3 groups of classes – Kids (ages 5-8), Tweens (ages 9-12), and Teens (ages 13-18.)

Offers a Performing Arts Program on Saturdays from 12:00-2:00 for teens and young adults with special needs. The program incorporates Dance, Acting and Singing.
