The Performers Academy (TPA) is dedicated to sharing the power of the performing arts with the entire community. We are committed to helping individuals find their passion for the performing arts – especially those who may not otherwise be exposed to its power. TPA believes improving quality of life is heavily rooted in improving family and community engagement. Our Fall and Spring showcases are free and open to the public in which we invite parents, guardians, relatives, peers, and community members to bear witness to the work the students have done and prepared to share with their entire community with the intent of improving the quality of life through meaningful cultural enrichment. We make every effort to expose our teens to all opportunities available for their personal enrichment, health, and peace of mind.
The Performers Academy utilizes creative and innovative partnerships as a primary tactic in making healing arts accessible to communities that suffer from limited access. Too often the arts are treated as a privilege or reward as opposed to a preventative measure or educational enrichment. It is because of this harmful narrative that students attending alternative schools, drug rehabilitation programs, incarcerated youth, and students on house arrest are not provided artistic exposure. Our impact on the community we touch is a palpable and evident presence in our day to day experience.
