The Mooresville Arts Partnership is a not for profit arts education facility for dance, drama, music and visual arts. It is a partnership of teachers, families and community members with a goal to nourish the arts, creativity and community through education, performance and exhibition.
The MAP offers year-round classes and workshops for children, teens and adults, taught by trained artists and professional educators, in a positive environment. Classes encourage creative thinking and individual expression while teaching skills, ideas, and techniques. Small class sizes allow for individual attention while encouraging students to work on different ability and developmental levels. The MAP will strive to make an impact on our Community and to make art and arts education available to all individuals regardless of their ability or socio-economic status. Together we will put the Arts on The MAP!
The following classes are available for enrollment:
Theatre & Young Actors Programs The young actors program is available to youth from 3 to 16 years of age. Students will learn the skills and processes to create a performance, including performance styles and techniques - acting, improvisation, stage, on-camera acting and more!
