Open Arts, scheduled to open in August in the Copeland Oaks Center, will provide dance, music, and yoga instruction for children, teens, and adults in an atmosphere of respect and encouragement with a focus on service and sharing the arts with the community.

Morrisville families will benefit from the wide variety of class offerings available at Open Arts including a Mommy and Me program, Yoga for kids, teens, and adults, Musical Theater, Ballet, Tap, Jazz, and Modern Dance. The studio will also offer several visual arts and music workshops as well as adult yoga and art retreats.  Performance opportunities for students throughout the year will focus on the studio’s philosophy of sharing the arts with the people in our community who may not otherwise get to experience them. From low-income schools to nursing homes and community non-profits, Open Arts dancers and performers will be sharing their gifts in a spirit of love and compassion.  Artistic Director and studio owner Maia Wirth says the mission of Open Arts is “to serve as partners with our students and community, inspiring each other to our highest potential, nurturing confidence, individuality, and creativity and cultivating a life-long appreciation for the arts.”

Most classes are taught by the Artistic Director who brings to Open Arts over ten years of teaching experience in public schools and dance studios. Maia received her B.A. in Dance and B.S. in Music Education from Elon University where she studied as a North Carolina Teaching Fellow. She has performed as a vocalist and dancer throughout the United States and Europe and was recognized as a semi-finalist for the Wake County Public School System’s Teacher of the Year award in 2011. “Maia is going to make a fantastic business owner and Artistic Director and I look forward to her creating another beautiful place in the Triangle for children to grow through dance” says Holly Springs School of Dance Director Marilyn Chappell.

Construction is underway in the 2,250-square-foot studio, featuring over 900-square-feet of movement space with a professional sprung dance floor. Families will benefit from a large and spacious lobby with glass studio walls to observe classes while students will enjoy their own break room with a changing area, storage for bags and shoes, and a desk to work on homework between classes. The entire studio is designed with the safety, comfort, and convenience of families and students in mind.

Open Arts brings a unique arts and movement experience to Morrisville families who are seeking a fresh take on the traditional dance studio and arts education. Classes are available for students starting at 18 months to adult. A full list of classes and fees is available at and families can register for all classes online.
