About Us

Supporting arts integration education programs across the United States with digital marketing and web development support. 

AZDS believes that the teaching of the arts in K-12 education fosters advanced thought leadership, ultimately benefitting both the next generation of professionals as well as the future of business. The arts in all forms (theatre, music, dance, and classic art) are what allow students to excel in the core subjects (math, science, social studies, literature, and writing) and further allow students to develop socially and become both right brain and left brain thinkers.

At AZDS, we use the arts every single day—designing websites, marketing campaigns, branding, and creating beautiful virtual and digital experiences. But even our clients in the hospitality industry are truly practicing a form of theatre every single day. From the moment you step into a hotel, the employees are actors and the managers are the directors. They are orchestrating a symphony of extraordinary service that allows guests to make new memories.

The leadership at AZDS, along with a stellar board of innovators and leaders from a variety of industries, has come together to create the AZDS Propel Foundation (Propel). Propel is a Colorado 501(c)3 public charity that supports arts integration programs across the United States with digital marketing and web development support.

AZDS Propel is a non-profit 501(c)(3) Tax ID #81-2696695
