Inspiring Excellence through Arts Education
"First teach a person to develop to the point of his limitation and then - pfft! - break the limitation." --Viola Spolin

Impressionist level (7th grade & up)

Play Big, Brave and Bold!

Public speaking is the number one fear of most people. The improvisational aspect of our curriculum allows an artist to discover the stage and all of its edges.  Our brilliant instructors know just how to tip you off balance so that you forget about fear and jump in! Once there, you will relish in the rush of excitement! You will feel so at home, so certain, confident, comfortable; that you will forever carry little bits of it into your life!

Work Behind the Scenes

We know that the work behind the scenes is a significant part of learning the art of the stage, while teaching valuable life skills. Our one-of-a-kind internship program brings out the best in artistic problem solving, and communication and leadership skills.  Allow your confidence and ability to grow as we nurture you to reach your full potential!  CLICK HERE to learn more about A.I.M.

You’ll Fit Right In

You are smart, a free spirit, confident in who you are. You are proud of your independent quirkiness and you cherish beauty, creativity and uniqueness. You love the rush of performing and you value the friendships you make along the way.

Are we right? Join our SAA family – we’re confident that you’ll fit right in!

Historically the Impressionist movement emphasized the individual, the subjective, the irrational, the imaginative, the personal, the spontaneous, the emotional and the visionary…Sound like someone you know?

We believe our Impressionist level artist is at the point in his life where he has identified with his passion and is committed to stepping out and changing his world. We value this exciting time in the artists life as she works tirelessly to embrace her passion and perfect her craft. 

“SAA has made me who I am today! My amazing teachers believed in me more than I believed in myself. They encouraged me to overcome challenges and celebrated my accomplishments. The skills I’ve learned will carry with me for the rest of my life.”   

~ Christina Leamon

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. ~Philippians 4:8
