ABOUT

Welcome from the Artistic Director

At RuBarb School of the Performing Arts, we believe that children should be free to dream. In their dreams, they can be ANYTHING. In their dreams, they are confident as they take on new roles and embark on new adventures.

Private lessons will develop your young artist’s confidence and discipline while having a musical experience tailored to their individual goals. Children who are eligible may receive funding from Creative Kids to participate in lessons. Please visit www.CreativeKidsSask.ca for application forms and upcoming submission dates.

RuBarb School of the Performing Arts is committed to helping every child succeed and shine while treasuring their individual creativity and striving for excellence. We are excited to grow the leaders and performers of tomorrow. We are honoured to work with your children and dream right alongside each one of them.

Thank you!

Evie Koop Sawatzky, Artistic Director
