SAS Performing Arts, a non-profit organization, has a twofold purpose. First, we are dedicated to grow, sustain, and educate our community audiences by presenting classic and contemporary works in various genres of the performing arts that are fully accessible and cost-efficient for our patrons. Secondly, our studios focus on emerging artists to study, perfect their craft, and achieve their goals in a safe, artistically inclusive, socially impactful, and relevant environment. We are committed to equity, diversity and inclusion in all aspects of our organization
Our Main-stage Virtual Theater and Concert Opera programs allow established artists to perform new roles as well as introduce the talents of emerging artists from our programs performing alongside them.
In return, performers and audience members will better understand the world by viewing it through the lens that only the arts can provide.
We envision a fostering environment for both the artist and audience where:
the performer can connect with their inner creative self.
the performer can expand their horizons with study.
the performer acquires the skills to project confidence in their purpose and contribution.
the audience can connect with the creativity of the past, present, and future.
the audience expands their horizons by the experience.
the audience rewards the performer with a sign of appreciation.
IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE
During the past several months, we postponed all classes, workshops, masterclasses, and performances as we
explored different avenues to safely resume our activities for our participants, artists, patrons, and staff. Our path ahead seems very straightforward.
We plan to create a more prominent social media presence. At the same time, we will begin to resume our classes and workshops, which will now be held via an online platform and finally, produce online and live stream productions of classic repertory.
During this time, we appreciate our public’s thoughtfulness. We are confident that there will be a bright horizon for the performing arts, and we want to continue to move forward to that future.
AN IMPORTANT STATEMENT FROM SAS PERFORMING ARTS & STUDIO, INC.
In response to the shameful and disgraceful racist acts across our nation, SAS Performing Arts Company and Studios, Inc. pledges to be a representative for change. We call upon all performing, creative, and technical artists, staff, board members, and every audience member who has benefited from their talent to join us to remove racism and
safeguard justice in our country.
Performing Arts Organizations should not participate in such deplorable practices, and performance spaces
should never be a setting where prejudice should permeate the atmosphere.
We hear you; we support you; we stand with you.
