The Passion Academy Philosophy

Passion Academy was created to give students of all ages the opportunity to explore the possibilities in the world of fine arts. Whether it’s music, dance or early education experiences, we build all of our programs around the same three foundations:

  1. CreativityWe believe every student possesses a unique gift of creativity. Our mentors tailor each experience to help students to foster, uncover and explore their creative and problem-solving potential.
  2. Discipline – Best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell says that it takes roughly ten thousand hours of practice to achieve mastery in a field. At Passion Academy, we are committed to instilling discipline in our students to achieve their highest potential.
  3. Performance – We are committed to teaching our students to perform at their best. Whether that’s in a recital, concert or a performance event, our students will be coached on self-awareness, presentation and audience engagement.

This is our philosophy and our promise to you.
