About Us

About Us

The St. Paul & District Arts Foundation is a charitable arts education centre focused on youth in St. Paul and area. We are a CRA registered charity #837592393RR0001.

Our Mandate

  • To advance education by providing structured programs regarding visual, theatrical, dance, music and literary arts, and by providing opportunities for students to publicly exhibit and present their skills; 
  • To advance the public’s appreciation of the arts by providing high-quality artistic performance in public venues accessible to members of the community; and 
  • To undertake activities ancillary and incidental to the aforementioned charitable purposes.

Our Message

The St. Paul & District Arts Foundation is entering its sixth year of operation. Its mandate is not only to provide art programming at our home, the Maggie Porozni Foundation for the ARTS building, but to carry out our promises to the payments and the upkeep of the facility. As an arts organization, our job is to create exciting and engaging art programs for our membership. This would not be possible without dedicated board members, collaborative instructors, supportive membership, willing volunteers, and generous donors/sponsors. 

Thank all those who have donated to the vision of the St. Paul & District Arts Foundation. Thank you for making the St. Paul & District Arts Foundation a place for the arts to grow in our community and area!

Creativity Takes Courage


Floating Sprung Floor

Dance FloorStudio #1/2

These studios were brought about by the hard work of volunteers with the very best of intentions for the students. The goal was to create a space where students could dance on a surface that would not compromise their bodies but rather, allow them to give their very best. Keeping in mind the dancers’ entire career, a sprung floor was constructed so that it would lessen the chances of shin splints, joint problems, back pain, stress fractures, sprained ankles, and other musculoskeletal problems.
