Maia Correia-Fill

Director of Operations

Born in Los Angeles, CA Maia had been exposed to a number of different art forms via social and community art programs. Going onstage for the first time at the age of eight, she found a love of dance that slowly transitioned into a passion for community and cultural engagement through performance art. At age 16 Maia was honored by the State of California for her arts scholarship. From there she decided to shift her focus to teaching and creating meaningful community art programs in order to teach self expression through performance and visual art forms. 

In the subsequent years, Maia worked for a number of local studios and smaller businesses across Southern California. In the Fall of 2022, she was asked to join the faculty at the CalArts Community Arts Partnership, as they rewrote their dance curriculum into a street dance program. In the Spring of 2023, she was recognized by the American College Theater Festival for her outstanding work in the dance, directing, and arts administration program. Most recently, Maia was recognized by the Kennedy Center as one of the future leaders in the American Theater, and was asked to join their student advisory board, where she will be responsible for curating more inclusive student programming for their undergraduate and graduate programs. 

Maia is currently studying dance at Peck School of the Arts in Milwaukee, WI. In her time off, she throughly enjoys teaching, traveling, drinking British tea, and watching her friends perform. Maia is very excited to be working with the Innovation Show Choir. As well as creating meaningful student based programming, it has been a pleasure working with their board of directors to instill a lifelong appreciation of performance art in student artist across Los Angeles County.
