Arts and Culture
Southern Heartland Arts, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization supporting the visual arts in Newton County. Incorporated in 1988, SHA brought together Newton County artists, along with artists from Rockdale, Newton and Henry Counties and is one of the oldest visual art guilds east of Metro Atlanta.
Founded in 2001, Covington Regional Ballet is the dance performance arm of the Arts Association in Newton County’s Young Artists programs. Since its inception, CRB has been dazzling audiences of Newton County, and the surrounding area, with three annual productions: the Nutcracker, a spring ballet and a fall contemporary dance performance from the senior company.
We exist to inspire, educate and develop comprehensive dance technique for both recreational and pre-professional students. The school offers ballet, pointe, jazz, contemporary, tap, hip hop and musical theater providing students with the versatility necessary for success in the dance world.
