Art Beat Studio

With Frozen auditions beginning, students may want to prepare their vocal cords to belt out ‘Let It Go!’ Art Beat Studio is a space where students can learn to be a triple threat in music, dance, and acting. Theresa Smith, owner of Art Beat Studio and voice teacher, shares her journey from working out of her home in 2009 to having her own building on Main Street today.

“My friend and I would always joke about having a shared art space. We started getting serious about it in 2019 and found the studio in 2020. Due to the pandemic and familial duties, my partner left the studio. It’s nice to finally have a space close to the kids I work with,” Smith stated.
