At Tampa Bay Performing Arts Academy, our focus is on performance and we mean it. It is our goal to give each and every member of our musical theater casts & Encore Performance Team as much stage time as possible.
We believe that students should have lots of opportunities to demonstrate the skills they learn in class in front of a live audience. Our teachers know how vitally important it is to transition from rehearsal to performance and that can only happen in a live show. Each performance builds a student's confidence in themselves and with continued successes and occasional recoveries from failures students builds sustaining self-esteem.
Whether a true beginner with no experience or a student with years of performance , our goal is to give each student the opportunity to grow and share their talent on stage!!
