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). Other classes and workshops are designed to teach specific industry needs, or are geared to provide apprenticeships. But most of our classes can be taken just for fun too!
