Founded in Marin County California in 1988 by Virginia Stapleton, the school is distinguished by its commitment to inclusiveness and respect while providing top quality performing arts training.
The Stapleton School takes immense pride in creating a community that fosters creativity and uses the arts as a vehicle to promote personal development. One of the Bay Area’s largest non-profit performing arts institutions, the Stapleton School provides a nurturing and welcoming atmosphere where participants will always find a sense of community.
The Stapleton School’s main studio and office are located just a short walking distance from the charming downtown San Anselmo in Marin County California. We also have a satellite studio just a few blocks further on the border of San Rafael.
