Back to School

City Hearts is welcoming students back for the 2020-21 academic year!

This semester will be the first year City Hearts offers online classes for all students. Our top priority is keeping your children safe while delivering the same top-level Arts Education.

City Hearts is offering classes this year in Musical Theatre, Dance, Photography, Guitar, World Music and Shakespeare. If you are a teacher or Principle and would like to have a City Hearts program in your school email Sherry at to learn more.

We understand that distance learning comes with its own set of challenges and we have been preparing to meet these challenges head on. City Hearts will be hosting classes online and offering one-on-one sessions for students enrolled in all of our programs.

We look forward to seeing you all this year!
