  • Disciplining its students towards competent and successful demonstration
  • Providing a safe environment for students to explore and grow within each discipline
  • Deepening and expanding the audience's theatrical appreciation
  • Offer opportunities for youth and adults in dance, theatre, and music
  • Providing the creative and material conditions necessary for each artist to fulfill the potential of his or her talent
