Performing Arts Academy (PAA) offers year-round classes and musical theatre shows for pre-K through 12th-grade students.

In our fall and spring semesters, we have a wide variety of classes in dance, acting, voice, and technical theater, such as makeup, costumes, directing, and more.

Each spring and fall, PAA also produces fully-staged musical theater shows and plays for students in grades K–12. Auditions for Spring and Fall shows occur in August and January, with performances in October/November and April/May.

Additionally, we offer one- and two-week summer camps for ages 3–18 in musical theater, dance, acting, and technical theater. Registration for summer camps begins each year in January.

Business Review

“I continue to be amazed by PAA's professionalism, organization, and dedication to teaching our kiddos all about music, dance, theater, and the performing arts. I also love how everyone at PAA makes this experience fun for everyone while teaching them the importance of hard work, teamwork, and building relationships and connections with each other.” –Parent

“We had the BEST experience. My daughter has been anxious and not wanting to get on stage for the past several years. This was her first time in years and PAA made it a fantastic experience. She felt loved and comfortable. She was pushed gently out of her comfort zone while feeling valued and successful. Whatever you are doing is working!” –Parent

"It's super fun, most everybody is nice, the performances are high quality, and it's the best theater camp I've ever done!" –Student
