The Infinity Team’s goal is to create a welcoming, safe, positive place for students to explore, experience and excel in the arts. Our team helps empower students to stretch their minds, develop musical and artistic skills, and build self-confidence and self-esteem.

Each instructor is carefully handpicked based on technical ability, professional and performance experience, teaching experience, and alignment with Infinity’s Youth Development Philosophy. All instructors have practical experience such as touring, performing, or working for theaters or dance companies, and many also have Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees within their fields.

Student safety is at the forefront of all decision-making, and therefore all program staff and instructors are background checked prior to being hired.
