While Maple Valley may be small, that doesn’t stop it from having some fun and creative things for kids and adults to do.

There are many different classes and programs for every one to learn about music, art, dance, or anything else that interests them.

Children’s Dance Theater

Ensemble Ballet Theatre and Children’s Dance Theater offer some fun dance classes and workshops. Children’s Dance Theater describes itself as “a unique learning experience for children of all ages” and “dedicated to helping every student reach their full potential.”

Both dance theaters are meant for all children who show an interest in dance and they have a variety of dance styles to choose from. Ensemble offers ballet, pointe, contemporary, jazz, hip-hop, and combo. While Children’s is called dance theater, they offer many more fun programs for kids including art classes, and acting classes.

Voice in the Valley Music Classes

Along with the number of dance classes, Maple Valley offers a number of music and art classes. Voice in the Valley offers music classes for all ages. If you are interested in music then this is the place for you. This studio is meant for families and anyone else who finds an interest in music whether it be singing, piano, violin, or ukulele; there is a place for your musical talents. Even if you have no previous experience, Voice of the Valley will still help you reach your musical potential.

Dace’s Rock ‘n’ More Music Academy

Another fun music company is Dace’s Rock ‘n’ More Music Academy. In the mission and history section of their website they state that they’ve “already given private musical instrument lessons to thousands of kids in the area” and they have “taught hundreds up-and-coming bands how to get their act together and take it on the road.” Dace’s is very proud of the work they have done for students since they started and they hope to continue making these people into awesome rockstars.

AR Workshop Art Camp

AR Workshop is a fun art studio for children to express their artistic abilities. AR offers many classes and workshops where they teach you candle making, sign painting, finger knit blankets, and so much more. Not only do they offer these classes, they also allow you to sign up for events such as birthday parties, date nights, and team building workshops.

STEAMboat Studio Classes.

STEAMboat Studio is another partially art based studio that offers many other things as well. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics, it is meant for children ages 3-14 and it offers a wide range of fun activities and classes for children to take. Similarly to AR Workshops, they offer birthday parties, summer camps, workshops, and private events.

STEAMboat focuses a bit more on the engineering and science side of things rather than just the arts so that children have a variety to choose from. Their website states that they “believe that science is an exciting and essential part of education. However, traditional education systems often present it as a dull and complicated concept that leaves many kids disengaged and confused,” which is why they like to focus on this side of things so that they can make sure that kids are learning the essential sciences they need while still having fun so they will stay engaged.
