Enrichment Programs

Toma Programs are designed to encourage students to be comfortable with their originality and apply what they are learning within the classroom to make art.  Toma Teachers believes a student should never fear failure, rather appreciate it.  As adults, we have learned that failure is just a stepping stone towards greatness.  

The true benefit of a Toma Barre Education is confidence students gain.

How is Toma, Cultural Arts?

It is important we embrace discomfort by learning about a new culture.  This type of learning allows our community to recognize humanity.  Every school year we choose two cultural themes.  Students from each enrichment program will learn a new language and geography while creating their art of choice.  

2017 - 2018 Cultural Themes

American Sign Language (Fall Semester) & French (Spring Semester)


The concept of left-brain right-brain dominance never had a strong foundation in science in the first place, and now this theory has been totally debunked.

The most complicated functions humans perform, such as learning a language or playing or listening to music, require whole brain thinking.

Cultural Appropriateness

How do you teach a culture that is not your own?


Toma takes great pride collaborating with community members who are fluent in the language and/or from the geographic location. 

Long Term Benefits

What is the value in investing in the arts if I want my child to be a doctor, engineer or president?


Science based occupations are wonderful and greatly appreciated but this is no reason to discredit creative fields.  Creativity is the starting place for narrowing biological aspects (medical), soldering procedure (engineer) or ratifying a bill (president).


Toma programs are more than just a hobby, it is an occupational tool for the future.  What would your world look like if you could speak multiple languages and converse with anyone about anything?
