Our Mission

Professional Standard,

Community Spirit

The Ziegfeld Arts Academy is about art, collaboration, and acceptance. Our driving motto is "Professional standard, community spirit," and it drives every aspect of our work. We work to enlist A-list local teachers and produce a professional quality classroom environment, always keeping in mind that positivity is essential. Joining these ideals is a guiding principle of improvisation: "Yes...And!"  The "Yes" means that we accept theatrical, musical, and visual arts that are furthering the community's knowledge and cultural experience. The “And” describes our dedication to enhancing the idea and furthering its impact.
