A Peek Inside for Parents

Metropolitan School of the Arts

Metro Arts, as it likes to be called, is precisely why we got into this business. Walk through the doors and find yourself lifted by the energy, the creative expression, the joy in kids' faces. Equal parts art academy (with full academic accreditation), after-school club, and summer camps, Metro Arts is a living, breathing example of why kids thrive when the creative genie locked within them is at least freed.

Founder Melissa Dobbs, an accomplished dancer in her own right, is on a mission to revitalize the arts in a nation that is removing them from traditional school curricula.

Speaking of which, Metro Arts offers a rich catalog of courses, including dance, theatre, music, voice, and more. We urge you to visit the campus or check out one of the school's many performances.
