The Program:

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.

The best part of IFTA is...

"the atmosphere and the fun!"

"the whole experience."

"making new friends!"

"the people there, the teachers, the classes, the things you learn, the feeling of being accepted, the freedom of dressing and acting how you want without worrying about being judged, and just basically the whole camp."
