The Mooresville Arts Partnership is proud to announce that the new Community Center building is open and now enrolling for Fall 2015. It has been quite a journey, from the fundraising, to the hard work transforming this wonderful building into our new home. MAP now features 8,500 sq. feet of classroom spaces, which includes the ballet room, acro room, performance stage, community room, two music rooms, a youth art room and beginner dance room. We've installed sprung floor and Marley for our dance spaces, tuned up all the pianos, stocked the youth art room, and continue to make changes everyday as donations are received to improve each teaching space. We are excited to see the growth in our students and can only look forward to all the great things which they will accomplish here at the new MAP. The importance of providing an arts education to our students is a responsibility and a privilege which we whole-heartedly embrace. Now here’s a bit of what’s coming up in the next couple weeks:

NEW CLASS: Beginner Guitar

Posted by Rosemary Rogers on August 4, 2015 at 6:20 PM Comments comments (0)


“I just managed to convince my grandmother that it was  worth while, that was something to do, you know, and when I did finally get the guitar, it didn’t seem that difficult to me, to be able to make a good noise out of it.”

- Eric Clapton

Want to learn guitar?    A new group class is starting iat MAP that will introduce students of all ages to the guitar.

This new class includes learning about the guitar, its' sounds in a group context (orchestra or band etc.) parts of the instrument, how to hold and make sounds on them, and lots of hands-on time with it. In addition, students will learn an overview of beginner music, strumming patterns and strengthening exercises, and how to hold a note to get a clear tone. Students will play tunes which are familar to them and create their own music as a group.  The class meets Wednesdays at 6:00pm. This is a great class for families and friends to try, as well.   Afterall it is great to have someone to learn with and practice at home, too.  A few in class guitars are available for students, although we encourage  students to bring their own instrument if they have one available.

BEGINNER GROUP GUITAR meets Wednesdays at 6:00pm with Frank Shelton.

Private Guitar is also available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, call 317-437-0102 to reserve a lesson.

Entwyned, a wonderful string duet will kickoff our day with a bit of Sir Roger of Coverly. Our dancers will show you how to do a jig and join in the fun. At Noon, the Irish troupe, Celtic Mist will perform on traditional instruments a wide variety of carols and tunes.


CHRISTMAS GOODIES: You can also visit our Christmas workshop! During the month of December our windows will be filled with old fashioned ornaments, nutcrackers, and original artists ornaments. These items have been donated to the MAP and any proceeds from their sale will benefit the students and programs of Mooresville Arts Partnership. We'll also have some special Holiday package deals available for dance, art, music and drama classes.


VICTORIAN TEA ROOM: Our Studio B/Drama Room will transform into a romantic Victorian Christmas Tea Room complete with sweet treats and refreshments. Wassail, Hot Teas and Treats will be available and our Victorian Era Staff will help make you holiday fun! Any donations will benefit the student fund.
