We love pursuing creativity and all things GOOD! We connect kids with the arts, teaching and inspiring them to DANCE, make MUSIC, create visual ART and express themselves in THEATRE. Our mission is shaping hearts through the arts!

We opened our doors for the first time in August, 2006 with a goal of offering quality instruction in an atmosphere of excellence. We believe everyone has a “lifesong” that is expressed by what they love and how they live. We are privileged to be a part of the journey of young artists, encouraging and nurturing them, teaching them skills and giving them the tools to grow and develop their God-given talents as they learn to express themselves through the arts and develop their “lifesong.” We are humbled and grateful to do what we do.

Regardless of age or experience, Lifesong offers opportunities for everyone to be creative, connect with great people and hopefully discover the artist within themselves. It our hope that everyone will be encouraged and inspired to explore the arts and even realize passions and talents they didn’t know they had.


We love this place and the beautiful community of people here. Lifesong is a really special community and we are so grateful to be a part of it. We get to work with an amazing team of artists and professionals who believe in Lifesong’s mission of “shaping hearts through the arts” and in making a positive difference in the lives of our students and our community.

Our hope is that our students will become amazing dancers, musicians, artists, and actors, and even more importantly, we hope they become amazing people ... filled with integrity, kindness, compassion and appreciation for life, art and all things good!

As a way of “shaping hearts through the arts,” we highlight specific words each month and try to incorporate them into who we are as people and who we are as artists. Respect, commitment, grace, love and kindness are just a few of the words that are painted on the walls of our studios and serve as a daily reminder of the most important things in life. Art, in any form, is an expression of the heart and our belief is that if your heart is full of good things, your art (and life) will be too!

If you’re not yet a part of our community, we invite you to come experience “the Lifesong way.” We look forward to meeting you!
