Center for the Arts

Welcome to Family Life’s Center for the Arts, an arts program located in Hammondsport, NY, that cultivates the spiritual life and creative work of artists. As believers in Jesus Christ, we believe artistic expression is a gift from God meant to be nurtured and developed in the context of faith.

Center for the Arts offers private vocal and instrumental lessons, along with a variety of dance classes, all in a nurturing and Christ-centered atmosphere. The facility is fully equipped with three rehearsal studios and a large dance studio where instructors cultivate mind, heart and craft.
