Atlantic Arts Academy
Four dance studios. A 200-seat, stadium-style proscenium theater. One 1,000-square foot stage. More than 10,000 square feet of air-conditioned space. The instructors at Atlantic Arts Academy ensure students have ample room to comfortably explore their creative potential in a range of performing- and visual-arts classes. They coach students in the basics of ballet, modern, and hip-hop dance on floating cushioned floors or in the principles of solo and ensemble singing in a private vocal studio. On the stage, acting classes push visitors to explore creative movement, improvisation, scene study, and the idea that all the world's just a figment of Shakespeare's imagination.
