We are the only youth academy in the front range that offers comprehensive performing arts training in voice, dance, and acting.

- Seven of nine AAPA actors got call backs at their Denver School of The Arts auditions. Five AAPA actors were accepted to DSA!
- Eight of our students were cast in local adult professional productions including The Denver Center for The Performing Arts, Boulder’s Dinner Theatre, and The Vintage Theatre amongst others.
- Fifty students from our Denver and Boulder Companies performed and competed at the Colorado Thespian Conference in dramatic acting and musical theatre categories.
- And all of our students developed themselves as young people and performing artists in a community of committed performers.
Every year, we continue to expand performance opportunities for our students.
If you’re looking for focused training for your young actor, consider auditioning for the 2016/17 season.
