The Performing Arts Academy
Explore the World of the Performing Arts
The aim of The Performing Arts Academy is to provide an institute-style theater environment that provides each student with theatrical training in character development, stage craft, vocal technique, theatrical dance, costume design, set construction, technical lightning and sound design. For nineteen years, we’ve provided students with a wide range of engaging and technically challenging performances; this ensures that our students' experience resume building shows, as well as fun and entertaining musical theater. The Academy Artistic Team has had the great pleasure of training and teaching many wonderful and talented young artists, and hopes that this blessing will continue for many more years to come.
Through the years, The Performing Arts Academy's Artistic Team has expanded to include many magic makers. Our industry professionals include many fields of the performing arts. This program and its teaching wouldn’t be possible without their help and support. Our students and staff continue to utilize the state-of-the art teaching facility that we have in the Chalmette High Cultural Arts Theatre, and we push to create educational performance opportunities that exceed both the space and the theatre resource capacities. We are very fortunate to have top-notch entertainment industry resources and a team of people with the vision and courage to use those resources to their maximum potential.
