Art & Dance

Your portal to creativity

Music, art and dance lessons are your portal to creative outputs for the world (but mostly you) to enjoy. Arts & Culture programs at Dovercourt are available for children, adults and families.

Every one of us has the ability to contribute to the arts and culture that surround us. We all have the ability to create works of art that will inspire others, make them smile, tap their toe, make them go “hmmm”. Sometimes we need encouragement, sometimes we need to be taught a new skill to convey our emotions that just can’t be explained. Sometimes we just need a hand with the technical aspects of our craft. 

“Our instructor was phenomenal. He made the class fun and really motivated them to do their best. He challenged them so that they could meet their potential. A great experience!”

Visual Arts

Stimulate your brain and release the creativity inside while developing the skill set to present your ideas, in just the way you want for others to take in. Whether with a brush, a pencil a crayon or with paper maché, everyone can be taught to create a visual representation their thoughts, emotions and psyche. Side effect: even your doodling will improve!
