The Creative Arts Guild offers year-round instructional classes in the areas of Dance, Visual Arts, Music, and Culinary Arts for students of all ages. Last year we provided nearly 4,500 classes to over 550 students and more than 3,000 private music lessons to more than 100 students.
Each department offers its students opportunities to showcase and celebrate their work in the form of recitals and exhibitions.
Our Dance Department offers ongoing classes in ballet, pointe, jazz, modern, and hip-hop for students of all ages. Ballet Dalton, the Guild’s resident pre-professional company, gives dedicated dance students the intense training needed to pursue a career in dance should they choose to do so. Ballet Dalton has two company levels: Junior Company and Senior Company. Our highly qualified dance staff offers a diverse curriculum and all of our teachers hold degrees in dance and dance pedagogy. The dance department and Ballet Dalton produce an annual original full length ballet entitled The Snow Queen each fall as well a Spring Recital each May.
Our Music Department employs music instructors who offer private lessons in piano, voice, guitar, saxophone, flute, brass instruments, percussion, violin, banjo, and more. All of our students are given the opportunity to perform at seasonal recitals and concerts.
Our Visual Arts department offers classes for children and adults in the areas of drawing, painting, pottery, mixed media and art exploration. We have visual arts instructors who teach specialty arts classes ranging from an introductory Discovering Art class to advanced Acrylic Painting and Life Drawing. Many of our art students are given the opportunity to showcase their work in our galleries.
Chef Jasa Joseph leads our Culinary Arts program. We offer cooking classes for adults 18+ on the first Tuesday of each month from a wide variety of cooking styles and cuisines.
