About

Producing talent since 1992.

  • 1992

    Our Humble Beginnings

    In 1992, Cygnus was born from a concept developed by Maryann Cannon and Cynthia M. Domino to create a total arts school in the former McKee City School building in Egg Harbor Township. Their perseverance, talent, dedication, and hard-work transformed the school into a facility that met our community's needs for an arts resource.

  • August 6, 1993

    Cygnus Was Born

    After a year of development, Cygnus was incorporated as a nonprofit organization on August 6, 1993.

  • 2005

    Expansion

    Under the leadership of Artistic Director Cynthia M. Domino, the school outgrew its original home. In 2005, the Township of Egg Harbor invited Cygnus to be part of the proposed Township Community Center.

    Relocation

    In June 2008, Cygnus Creative Arts Centre moved into its new home in the Township Community Center. This building houses traditional and new classes, performances, workshops, and art shows.
