In 2001, the founders of The Academy came together with the vision of enhancing the culture of music, dance, and the performing arts in Arizona. Set up as a non-profit organization from the beginning, this group formed as the first Board of Directors and began programming events, ensembles, and fundraising campaigns. Their first goals were to start small with a few programs and events, and, to increase awareness of the positive effect that an organization such as this can have on a community.
