British Academy of Performing Arts is a Performing Arts School that offers Dance, Acting, Musical Theatre and Voice classes. Whether you are new to performing arts, or you have been taking class for years, we have a class that is just perfect for you.
Open Classes: 2 - 12 years
In Open Classes students are placed by age. Find the class that works with your schedule and come along and give it a try. If you are not sure about what class to take, try them all! We have a Trial Week - that is your first week of class with us, where we encourage you to try any class for your age. This is an amazing way to get to know BAPA. Students take classes on a weekly basis; in ballet students who really want to see tremendous progress typically take two classes a week.
So for example - one of our age groups will be classes for 5 - 8 year olds, our teachers have years of experience encouraging each child to push through to the next level. Your dancer will then progress onto the 9 - 12 year old class once they are rising 9.
In these classes all students will receive a high quality of training and teacher attention to ensure that they are developing both their skills and performance technique.
We invite you to join classes from August through February each year. We follow the Cobb school calendar year, and observe their closings for inclement weather.
Your teen will feel right at home at BAPA. The Teen Program - open classes is specifically designed to accommodate the beginner through intermediate student by offering different streams of classes. We encourage all performers to take more than one performance discipline to ensure that at BAPA we produce well rounded performers! The Teen Program has a very high quality of teachers and students are expected to achieve the same level of technique as Company Performers, but with less time commitment. All students enrolled on the Teen Program have the opportunity to perform both at our annual BAPA Recital at The J.T. Anderson Theatre, and as guest dancers in other shows throughout the year.
Teens who really love performing arts - consider becoming a company member; there are several companies to choose from, click on our company pages for more info.
