Cultural ArtsAnastasia Teel in "Gotta Be Broadway" 2009

The Cultural Arts Department offers a wide variety of opportunities to experience the arts through Dance, Theater, Music, and Visual Arts.  A majority of our performing-arts classes take place in the Centennial Arts Activity Center, located in Centennial Park, where there are typically three sessions offered per year (Winter, Summer, Fall).  Across the park, the Centennial Art Center offers a fine art gallery, as well as adult-level classes in the visual arts.  For those who are more inclined to enjoy the arts from the audience, we have many performances scheduled through the year, both in our own performance venues (Z. Alexander Looby Theater, Centennial Black Box Theater), and in various other locations throughout the Parks system.
