The Pinellas County Center for the Arts Dance Department’s philosophy is based on the belief that a combination of strong technical proficiency and artistic skills combined with academic excellence provides the best preparation for the 21st century dancer, both on and off the stage. The Dance Department provides a nurturing, yet demanding and concentrated environment for an in-depth study of Ballet and Modern Dance. We believe that versatile performance and audition opportunities are essential for the total development of a dancer prepared to face the rigors and technical demands of today’s dance world.
The Music Program at the Pinellas County Center for the Arts is dedicated to the development of each student’s knowledge and artistic excellence in their area of music. A variety of instructional and performance opportunities prepares students either for advanced musical study or instills an appreciation for the arts in those who choose other careers. Student’s growth at the Center for the Arts will be directly proportional to the amount of time spent with their discipline. Inasmuch as the administration and the staff of the Pinellas County Center for the Arts consider it a privilege to teach gifted and motivated students, we feel it is reasonable to expect certain work ethics and behaviors from the talented students with whom we work.
