Students: 3rd – 8th Grades

In CineMusic, students learn to play various musical instruments while studying film scores and music production. Students learn general music concepts, history of film music, and composition. They will also collaborate with classmates and teachers to compose, perform, and record original scores! CineMusic is designed for 4th-8th grade students with an interest in learning music, working as a team, and engaging their imagination! Prior musical training is a plus, but is not required.

Art in Motion Dance

Students: 4th – 8th Grades

Art in Motion provides passionate, curious, and collaborative young dancers in Greater Cleveland with pre-professional dance education and the necessary tools to succeed artistically, professionally, and personally. Our vision is to uplift the value of dance, inspiring participants to view dance as an equal career and educational opportunity, while motivating dancers to learn and present their best selves.


Students: 3rd – 8th Grades

Intergalactic Art offers Visual Arts classes that nurture creativity and innovation by providing age-adaptable art projects and integrated art forms for youth in 4th to 8th grades.

Students engage in hands-on experiences in a fusion of visual art in 2D, 3D and digital art media, including Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Comic Character Design, and Digital Art (Graphic Design, Vinyl Cutting and Game Design). Students also learn to integrate their art experiences with diverse academic subjects and cultures, enabling them to hone self-expression, communication, teamwork, and problem solving skills through a variety of artistic approaches and sustained effort.


SCREENS Film Acting & Production

Students: 3rd – 8th Grades

SCREENS is an innovative acting and production program designed to inspire, cultivate, and catapult young performing artists into creative leadership! The program engages students in the arts of screen acting, singing, modeling, and cinematic storytelling. Students harness the power of modern screens — movie theater, cell phone, tablet, and television — to create a positive impact. This immersive learning experience is wide-ranging, educational, relevant and fun, focusing on the skillful mastery of the modern artistic canvas: the screen. Students also develop confidence, cultural consciousness, positive self-image, and social responsibility!

What time can I drop my child off if I am bringing them or another provider?

Students can be dropped off beginning at 2:30 pm.

How is after school tuition billed?

Tuition for our after school program is $1,000 for the entire year. A $25 registration fee is due upon registration and applies towards the first month’s tuition. The $125 monthly tuition fee is billed on the 5th of each month. Financial aid is available directly through Rainey! Please contact [email protected] to inquire about financial aid.

What type of financial assistance does Rainey offer?

Will students still get a meal?

Students will receive a snack before programming every day.

Will my child be able to do their homework?

Rainey allocates time for students to complete their homework between 2:30 pm and 3:30 pm. Our teachers rely on your children to inform them if they have homework and are never to go through a child’s backpack in search of agendas or homework. If your child needs more support or time for homework we ask that you reach out to Andrea Soncina, Arts Education Coordinator, to discuss a plan at [email protected].

“My child loved being able to express himself and make friends who share common interests with him.”
