Our teachers are passionate believers in the many benefits of performing arts. Whether a child is destined for life on stage and screen, or simply needs encouragement to come out of their shell, we believe that staying active, exploring creativity, building confidence and developing new talents through commitment and discipline to training are all invaluable skills for life. Therefore, it is our mission to ensure every child at PSSA feels safe and supported to express themselves and unlock their potential. We do this by creating a fun filled environment!
