The Los Angeles Academy of Performing Arts is a year-round conservatory that offers pre-professional training in drama, dance, and music to students ages thirteen through eighteen. Students from ages seven through twelve can enroll in the Junior Academy. At LAAPA, we believe that cultivating all areas of the performing arts is important to each student’s development as an artist and a person; therefore we take an interdisciplinary approach to our training. Students will be exposed to a curriculum that includes Shakespeare, Musical Theatre, Dancing, Singing, and Guitar, all the while learning the important life skills required to work successfully within a group environment.
In addition, LAAPA offers ongoing open classes to the community as well as performance camps, and workshops taught by some of the leading professionals in the world of performing arts.
The Los Angeles Academy of Performing Arts is committed to training our students to be first-rate professionals through skills training in class, and through collaborating with fellow students. We are committed to expanding the performing arts in our community through programs open to the public and learning institutions. We are committed to including people from all social, cultural, political, and economic backgrounds in celebrating the diversity of ideas. We are committed to helping develop our students as leaders in the performing arts and beyond.
