At the School of Arts and Culture at MHP we see the arts as powerful vehicles for human development and social transformation—by creating nurturing communities for children, especially those at risk.
We work to create a deep alignment in social and artistic goals. Our task is not to integrate the goals of social transformation and artistic excellence—but to, in the words of our colleagues in the El Sistema movement “reimagine them as one goal.”
Performance and exhibition is emphasized with the goal of working together toward a communal and joyful experience of creating art together—not as competitive pressure to see who is best.
We are proud to offer children and the community an inspiring space of professional caliber for performance and exhibition as a vehicle to make their learning visible.
*Folklórico dance classes under Los Lupeños Academy are offered in partnership with the Cashion Cultural Legacy. Classes are available for toddlers, children, teens and adults, at beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels. Los Lupeños Academy instructors not only teach dance, but connect the steps to music, customs, culture, and history. Students have the opportunity not only to learn dances but to learn what they represent as well.
