Earl Mosley's Institute of the Arts
The mission Earl Mosley's Institute of the Arts (EMIA), a subsidiary of the not-for-profit Diversity of Dance, Inc., is to provide an environment where student artists from diverse ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds can achieve the highest levels of excellence through positive collaborations with teachers and peers. The mission is achieved through its summer intensive, residencies, workshops, and its Workforce program. EMIA's teachers and staff insure that every student is welcomed and celebrated in a non-competitive environment. The institute strives to build a community of dance which enables each student to connect both technically and spiritually with their own art and individuality, one where they can feel safe to learn and grow in preparation for the challenges that lie ahead for them in the world of dance, the workplace, and life.
