Hamilton Academy of the Arts , we build creative expression!Our staff sees something special in every child!

Our dedicated staff with a love for children and well-planned graded curriculum has placed our students first in many competitions. Each year the Academy organizes and operates dance instruction in classical ballet, tap, jazz, point, and hip hop. Additional classes include power tumbling, cheerleading, piano, voice, children’s theater, sacred dance, karate, and Latin dance. Our students attend professional master classes and performances held in our community and at National Conferences. These students are urged to become a school family through special activities such as picnics, slumber parties, retreats, holiday gatherings, parent-teacher meetings and performances at nursing homes.
