Visual and Performing Arts Partners

  • At Altadena Arts Magnet, visual and performing arts are an integral part of a well-rounded education, boosting engagement and achievement. We provide weekly instruction in all art forms, nurturing the whole child and inspiring students to achieve their best.

    Students who have a history of in-depth arts involvement demonstrate better academic outcomes; they earn better grades and demonstrate higher rates of college enrollment and attainment. (Catterall, Dumais, & Hampden-Thompson, 2012)

    • Every student builds a strong musical foundation with weekly classes taught in partnership with Rhythm And Moves Performing Arts Conservatory (RAMPAC).
    • Students in grades K-2 experience fun, fitness, and fundamentals of dance  with  the award-winning AMAN Dance Educators. In grades 3-5, students learn classical, modern, and contemporary technique from professionals at Lineage Dance.






  • Lineage's mission of making the arts accessible to all means making sure students have access to dance in schools. The California Arts Council has awarded Lineage a grant to expand their Artists In Schools residency.

    Lineage is in residence at Eliot Arts Magnet and Altadena Elementary, funded in part by grants from the California Arts Council, and the Pasadena Educational Foundation.

    This activity is supported in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency. Learn more at
