Here’s what our happy students had to say about maoa:

MAOA is one of my favourite places on the Peninsula to host events. Writing Workshops, Creative Classes, Speaker Series, Fundraisers, Kids Camps and Birthday Parties. They do it all! Looking forward to more in the very near future. Sean is incredibly accommodating and very helpful.

Emily Olsen

One of the most creative and positive sources of energy on the Peninsula. We are lucky to have this place!

Patrick Schorle

A true hidden gem of a place! We love all it has to offer for our family- from Yoga, Arts, and Dance, we have all benefitted from the amazing classes and even MORE amazing instructors and staff. There is always a smiling face to greet you at the door, and give you a high five on your way out. We love MAOA!
