school of the arts

Pony Box School of the Arts provides free professional dance instruction, performance opportunities and tickets to see world class performances to over 2000 students ages 5-22 annually, in 8 elementary schools, 3 colleges, community centers and other venues.  Our annual event, International Children's Dance Day, is a glorious celebration of children and the arts, held in the Rose Garden at Exposition Park.

The main component of a healthy environment for self esteem is that it needs to be nurturing. It should provide unconditional warmth, love, and caring. It needs to provide the realization that other people are recognized as deserving to be nurtured, reinforced, rewarded, and bonded to.
