Classes at Community Arts School

We offer classes in Dance, Music, and Visual Arts for children and adults. CAS faculty and staff have carefully considered the best course of action for each program area, keeping in mind that there are unique safety considerations each type of arts activity presents. In each decision, the health and safety of our students and faculty has remained the most important factor.

We are committed to providing our families and the community with quality arts education now and into the future. 

Wondering why you don't see a registration fee? CAS has waived the typical $25 registration fee for all programs for the 2020-2021 academic year to make our programs more affordable during this difficult time.
