Q: How can I be involved in my child's lesson?
There are many ways for a parent to be involved in a child's education. We find that for younger students, it can be helpful for the parent to take notes during the lesson and try to play an active role in the child's practice regimen to foster good habits. For students in their early to mid-teens, we believe a more hands-off approach is better to allow the student to develop the autonomy they will need as an adult.
Q: What are some of the benefits of taking dance lessons?
Dance not only positively affects a person's health, but it also gives people an outlet to express themselves. Dance aids in building confidence in your body, appearance, and overall attitude. There are infinite possibilities to explore new styles of dance, and it truly allows people to be storytellers without saying a word.

Q: What are some of the benefits of taking music lessons?

Q: What are some of the benefits of taking drama lessons?
There are many facets to the field of dramatic arts. Students gain confidence with public speaking, and have the opportunity to bounce off ideas with their instructor, in order to get their creative juices flowing.
Q: What makes ECTA different from other art organizations?
ECTA was founded by two people who personally understand the difficulty of having to go outside of their communities for certain opportunities.
Through community outreach, we bring the arts to communities and spaces that are traditionally overlooked as performance venues, such as elderly homes and hospitals. Achieving equity in the arts means that we can no longer ignore these spaces.
Also, while many organizations specialize in a specific area like classical music, we aim to offer a wealth of choices for prospective students to study via our multi-disciplined roster.
