Mission / Philosophy
The Stapleton School of the Performing Arts is dedicated to providing every student with a high standard of classical ballet and performing arts training in an open, healthy, respectful, and stimulating environment. Students are encouraged to discover and pursue their love of dance in a supportive community, without having to endure harshness, exclusivity, or peer competition. The Schools constant goal is to infuse the tradition of world class ballet training with deep understanding and encouragement of the growing child; equally instilling appreciation for the art, and for high self-esteem, confidence, and grace.
