General information

The Scripps Performing Arts Academy is a quality professional training facility for dance and music. With a full dance curriculum (Ballet, Pointe, Musical Theatre, Modern, Jazz and Tap) for children and adults as well as a music department, offering a variety of both vocal and instrumental training, we are a training facility that defines excellence! We acknowledge the solid foundation ballet training provides and see it as the basis of all dance forms. As such, we include it in the curriculum for those that wish to pursue other dance disciplines. Our Imagination Station, a creative alternative to pre-school, offers parents a convenient “One-Stop-Shop”. Dance, art, gymnastics, music, with an appreciation for foreign language, creatively enhance the outstanding academic curriculum. We offer three major ballet productions each year, one tap and jazz production and a variety of musical theatre workshops and productions for students who choose to develop their performance skills. We’ve trained students that have been accepted to programs with American Ballet Theater, The Ailey School, Boston Ballet, the Kirov Academy, and The Rock School, Harid Conservatory, Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet and The Joffrey Ballet School, Chicago and New York. We’ve also had students go on to successful academic careers at the Boston Conservatory, University of California at Irvine, New York University, Boston University, Northwestern University, Stanford University and Fordham University. Whatever goals you may have for your performing arts training, we’re here to help you create a schedule that will get you there.
