Mission Statement
South Fork Performing Arts strives to bring quality arts education to local youths by utilizing area professional artists and teachers in the subjects of theatre and music.
Teaching Philosophy
At SFPA we believe in teaching more than just subject material to students. By utilizing their strengths and learning styles as individuals and as a cohort we can educate the whole student and ensemble. By building strong relationships with our students in small class settings and through private instruction, we feel students can learn in a safe and supportive environment that aids them in their learning process and sets them up for success. Knowing that the arts often attracts individuals who may be sensitive or feel they don’t “fit in” with their peers, we hope to provide an environment in which they feel they can succeed with support from their peers and educators alike. Through ensemble building and course study, we strive to prepare our students for arts disciplines and the world at large.
