Developing The Artistry Within

The Wirth Center for the Performing Arts has offered the very best music and dance instruction in the upper midwest since 1981. Our exceptional level of education, coupled with many exciting performing opportunities, have attracted students of all ages.

Our faculty are talented in their fields of music and dance and hold a great love for the performing arts. Our music faculty offer lessons on piano, drums, voice, guitar, bass guitar, flute, violin, African Drums, marimba, and more! Our dance faculty have classes from early childhood music and movement, to creative dance, traditional African dance, and both youth and adult ballet! We will be sure to inspire you!

Serving central Minnesota and the Twin Cities, our history is marked by the success of our students and the inspiration of our teachers. We are a fast growing, nationally recognized performing arts community and we'd love for you to be part of it! We are located in St. Mary's Education building, adjacent to St. Mary's Cathedral, in historic downtown St. Cloud, Minnesota.

Summer Is Here!
