The Elementary Institute for the Arts (E-IFTA) is a 2-week arts immersion program for students who love to sing, dance, act, perform, and create. In week one students rotate through four classes, each representing a different arts form – dance, music, theatre, and visual art. In week two they are introduced to four entirely new classes. Classes are taught in a fun and supportive environment where students are encouraged to develop their talents and skills in the arts.
