Our Mission

We believe in the power of story. We strive to honor every story with specificity, urgency, awareness, and authenticity. We believe in the vitality of each student’s unique truth to be integral to the artistic process that drives each story. And above any individual artistic accomplishment, we believe in empowering young professionals with the core values of collaboration, integrity, compassion, and ensemble.
