Trained industry professionals at Asheville Performing Arts Academy cultivate creativity in fledgling scholars with weekly dance and drama classes. Patrons can enroll pint-size progenies in a semester of Kindermusik classes, introductory music courses designed to bolster their cognitive development and prepare them for potential careers as boat rowers and bus wheels. Designed for even younger tots, the school’s Creative Arts Preschool program embraces dance, art, and drama to foster critical-thinking skills and boost confidence levels at an early age. Children may also opt to perfect their two-stepping abilities in a slew of classes—including ballet, Irish dance, and Broadway style—that cater to a variety of age groups and experience levels.
Junior thespians meet twice a week in theater classes, exploring the process of acting as fictional people, fantastical creatures, or classic Shakespearean vegetables pontificating on the importance of balanced diets. During the 10-week course, they’ll rehearse for a staged production of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory or You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown that they’ll perform upon the semester’s completion. All teachers are trained in first aid and CPR, as they understand the youths’ insatiable hunger for horseplay and Monopoly pieces.
