Arts Alive after-school classes are chosen and formed by the individual school, including the type of class and grade level(s) served. Classes are offered to all possible students and then selected either by a first come, first served basis or a random-selection system.

Classes typically run for ten weeks, one day per week, and are approximately 45 minutes to one hour long. For example, a dance/movement class would meet on Tuesday afternoons, right after school is dismissed, for ten sessions (excluding the days school does not meet for any reason).

There is NO charge to the family, unless the class requires the rental of an instrument. Arts Alive can sometimes help by negotiating reduced rates with rental organizations in the area. We own sets of certain instruments (mountain dulcimer, ukulele, guitar) and require a fully refundable deposit for the use of the instrument at home.

Arts Alive instructors are all talented individuals in their chosen art form, that have experience teaching children and the motivation to share their particular art form with the next generation.

Good behavior is crucial to everyone’s success in our classes. If a student is behaving in a way that causes difficulties for the instructor to successfully teaching the class, the child (after fair reminders/warnings) will be asked to leave the course permanently.
