"Where mighty oaks from tiny acorns grow"

Home to children's theatre, dance classes, and art instruction in the greater Bangor area.

Mission Statement

 Our mission is to make Theatre, Dance, and the Arts as accessible to as many young people in the area as possible.  We strongly believe that involvement in the Arts at an early age is beneficial to a person’s emotional and cognitive growth and development.  Our programs aim to improve a child’s confidence, imagination, and collaborative social skills.  We will give them the skills they need to perform their chosen art and to thrive as growing members of the community.  We believe in creating student leaders by giving our young adults the chance to teach and direct their peers.   By keeping tuition costs low and creating internship possibilities  we make sure as many children as possible are able to participate in our classes and activities.  We encourage all the students who walk through our doors to pursue their goals and “Dream Big”.
