The Infinity Performing Arts Program began in 1998 as a small music project centered around seven talented teens. The program has now grown into a county-wide non-profit organization serving 400 students in on site and off site settings. Infinity offers private lessons on musical instruments of many types and genres, as well as their recently added art and dance components. Infinity serves students between the ages of 5 and 21.
