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:
CLASSES: All our Fall 2015 classes are available for enrollment at this time, but hurry because many of the most popular class are filling fast. Visit https/app.thestudiodirector.com/mooresvillearts/portal.sd?page=Enroll&meth=search to enroll today. You may enroll online and attend class that same day, if you wish.
In addition to expanding all our fine arts and dance department offerings for our younger students , we have also added many adult level classes. We currently offer Yoga, Ballroom, Tap, Jazz, Ballet Fitness, Pointe, and Workin’It Wednesdays to the schedule, as well as, our Life Drawing Group and Introduction to Watercolor. Workshops and events are also planned for the new Community Room space in the coming months.
