Acclaimed Non-Profit Studio T Arts & Entertainment Announces Nationwide Expansion and Innovative 36,000 Square Foot Sacramento Facility

Founder Tamaira “Miss Tee” Sandifer marks the expansion with 50th Birthday Celebration and free events for the Sacramento community January 11-14

Studio T Arts & Entertainment, the award-winning non-profit organization founded by entrepreneur and youth program creator Tamaira “Miss Tee” Sandifer, is thrilled to officially unveil its nationwide expansion plans. The expansion announcement coincides with the much-anticipated “Dancing Into Fif-TEE” celebration, a four-day extravaganza in Sacramento, CA, marking Miss Tee’s 50th birthday and a soft opening of the new Studio T Arts & Entertainment Innovation Factory.

Miss Tee’s Studio T Arts & Entertainment, established in 2005, has mentored over 200,000 youth, instilling real-life skills, hope, and a sense of belonging through groundbreaking programming. The newly renovated $4M+ Sacramento facility spans 36,000 square feet, offering diverse studios for dance, photography, videography, podcasting, culinary arts, music production, and more.

“Our excitement in Studio T Arts and Entertainment’s substantial growth is a testament to the constant demand for effective youth programs,” expressed Miss Tee. “The momentum we’ve achieved underscores the necessity for high-quality initiatives that yield results. Our Arts-rich programming not only facilitates hope and healing but empowers trauma-informed youth to break cycles of poverty through the invaluable skills of earning a dollar and paying it forward. As we embark on this capital expansion, my birthday wish is for substantial support from corporations genuinely committed to the well-being and success of tomorrow’s leaders, by investing in organizations like Studio T Arts that stand at the forefront of transforming lives.”

Design Faculty at USC’s Graduate School of Architecture and Practice Area Leader for Art & Culture, Kevin Sherrod emphasized, “As Black and Brown people, traditionally we inherit spaces that aren’t designed uniquely for us. With this revolutionary expansion, Miss Tee is breaking the mold of what it means to shape our future world leaders by creating equitable and one-of-a-kind spaces across the nation for young people who aren’t traditionally considered.”

Studio T Arts’ commitment to fostering life skills, career opportunities, and social impact will expand with new locations in cultural and technological hubs, including Tulsa, OK, Philadelphia, PA, Harlem, NY, and Atlanta, GA by 2026. Additionally, Studio T Arts & Entertainment will launch a mobile app featuring Miss Tee’s tech-enabled learning platform,

Miss Tee, recognized as a pioneering founder in arts education and social impact, has garnered accolades such as Forbes Culture 50 Champion, “Woman of the Year” by Assembly Member Kevin McCarty, and Hub Magazine’s “Exceptional Women of Color.” She is also a board member of California Arts Council and Chair of Americans for The Arts’ Arts Education Council.
