JDS Creative Academy is for anyone who seeks education, training and knowledge in the arts.
We have structured certain classes to meet the 4th – 12th grade California Educational Code for Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) and PE (stage Combat & Movement and Musical Theatre). While other classes and workshops are designed for specific educational and training needs to learn technical mechanics for their specific industry, and some programs are geared to provide an apprenticeship into their career field.
