Every artist who comes through our door is unique. Their uniqueness as an artist and individual is recognized as an essential piece of our collective artistic expression.
Everyone belongs in “the Misfit Fam.”
We pride ourselves on being a place that everyone can call home.
You belong here!
Teamwork is essential for our artistic community to thrive. We rely on older artists to help the younger artists, thriving artists to help the struggling artists, and everything in between. No one works alone and every artist is vital to our team.
Above all, this program believes in creating quality art in all forms. We don’t believe in cutting corners, settling for mediocrity, or putting anything before the brilliant self-expression of our artists. Children, teens, and adults are all capable of creating fantastic music, theater, dance, art, and more. They just need leaders who believe in their intrinsic artistic potential and will take them seriously.
We take all of our artists seriously, regardless of age.
Standard of Excellence
We don’t hold back! When someone does something well, we tell them and we declare it publicly. We do this throughout all of our programming and at the conclusion of any class, performance, or presentation. We call it “encouragement time.” Encouragement time is where we take the time to point out what makes each person a vital part of our team. We encourage them and remind them of the special traits they have that make them a valuable, and more importantly, irreplaceable part of our community.
