Arts on the Horizon was founded as a professional, non-profit theatre company with a specific focus of providing high-quality, original, nonverbal performances for young people ages 0 to 6 and their families. We have the utmost respect for children and want what may be their first theatrical experience to entertain them, challenge them, spark creativity, and enhance the imaginative play in which many children this age engage.

Each arts education program provides targeted exploration of themes and ideas in order to help children enhance their language development, socialization, and fine and gross motor skills. Our classes take place in a meaningful, nurturing environment where children can develop their sense of self and increase their knowledge and understanding of the world around them.

In 2016, Arts on the Horizon was honored to be nominated for The John Aniello Award for Outstanding Emerging Theatre Company. In 2017, we were awarded a “50 for 50” Arts Inspiration Award by the Virginia Commission for the Arts in the category of “Emerging Arts Organization.” Between 2018 and 2019, three of our productions were nominated for Helen Hayes Awards in the “Outstanding Production – Theater for Young Audiences” category.  www.ArtsOnTheHorizon.org
