Fei Tian Academy of the Arts is a natural outgrowth of the Fei Tian Dance School, a nonprofit organization created by Falun Dafa practitioners in 2006. The School was formed in order to preserve, promote, and develop traditional Chinese arts through education and performances.

The School proved a success from the start and met with an overwhelming demand to expand its after-school program into a full-fledged secondary school offering specialized training in the arts. In response, school leaders formed a partnership with one of the world’s premier performing arts organizations, Shen Yun Performing Arts, and developed an innovative program to nurture young artists.

Fei Tian Academy of the Arts was thus established on March 19, 2007, thereby replacing the original Dance School.
