About Us 

At The Banner Studios, we believe that all students should feel inspired, encouraged, and challenged. We understand the importance of creativity and we are thoroughly aware of how creativity has always and will continue to change the world

We believe that art, music, dance, and theatre should be available to communities everywhere. We keep our prices reasonable, not because we undervalue our services but because we value our students and understand the impact we make. 

For families who are not financially able to afford our prices, we also work with Tuition Waiver for Youth Inc. 

Our program is designed to include more students, regardless of their ability to pay. This privilege is made possible by the hard work of our staff participation in fundraisers, and the generous donations from our community. Tuition Waivers will be granted to select students/families who agree to actively participate in class and maintain a consistent attendance record. Proceeds from our community theatre productions go towards the Tuition Waiver for the Youth program.

The Banner Studios is named after the 2011 Broadway musical, Newsies. We believe in the power of inspiration, and it is our goal to give that gift to all our students and guests.
