Bring PAS to Your Organization
The Wharton Performing Arts School offers community partnerships for schools and organizations that seek to expand or support their current arts programs. Private lessons, group classes, and workshops for instrumental music as well as Drama and Musical Theater Arts are available and tailored to the needs of each school or organization. Theater productions are also organized by Wharton Arts teaching artists with both after-school and in-school options to choose from.
“The partnership that our school has formed with Wharton Arts is invaluable. From running a virtual theatre workshop during the Covid shutdown, to in-classroom guest speakers, to directing and running a full 30 minute musical, all of Wharton’s programs have been meaningful, fun, and age appropriate. The Wharton administration team is very communicative, professional and responsive and truly listens to our needs in order to create the right programs for our school’s community. I wholeheartedly recommend Wharton Arts for any school’s performing arts’ education needs.” – Rachel Frank, PTO, Franklin Elementary School
“The Wharton Performing Arts School has provided Cedar Hill Prep with two wonderful music teachers for the past three years. Florence Lombardo teaches Preschool – 3rd grades and Joyce Alexander teachers 4th – 8th grades. Both teachers are extremely knowledgeable in their fields and they have a great rapport with our students. Our students finally enjoy going to music class, and the results are obvious. We are working with Wharton Arts to help grow our music program including private and group instrumental lessons and much, much more. It is a blessing and pleasure to have Wharton Arts help Cedar Hill Prep improve its program.” – Donald Seeley, Principal, Cedar Hill Prep School
