Description

SOMEBODAE School of the Arts (SSA)
"SOMEBODAE" pronunciation is Some-bod-day.

"I am somebody (somebodae), I am somebody (somebodae),
to have around, on God's green ground." -Mamie Nell Watson

SSA is a non-profit, scholarship base (tuition free) Performing and Visual Arts School (Theatre, Music, Dance, Art). The "Full Program" is open to individuals ages 14 to grown folks of our inner-cities, underserved communities across the U.S., with none to advance level training in the performing and visual arts where enrollment is per scholarship via audition. The "Short Program" is a lighter version of the Full Program yet open to the entire general public ages 13 to grown folks but with no audition or scholarship required and you DO NOT have to be a resident of an inner-city, underserved community.

In addition to preparing students for advanced study at the college level and professional careers in the Arts, students in the program learn the value and power of self-worth, personal discipline, innovative thinking, collaborative exploration, dedication, creativity, confidence, problem solving skills, perseverance, focus, communication, accountability and how artists are true instruments for powerful artistic expression.
