The Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Academy is a professional training academy. Our main focus is the proper & professional education and preparation of our students to be able to begin a career in the Arts. Our instruction is of the highest caliber and our guest instructors come to us direct from Broadway.

Your child’s participation in class is important to us and we will work tirelessly to insure they receive the attention they need. Parents should also understand that we do not double cast our shows; we teach a curriculum that is based in the way a professional show is cast, rehearsed and performed. We stress the “no stars” philosophy so our students understand the importance of being part of a “team”, that each and every part in a show is important and vital to the success of the final performance. Class sizes are limited so each student receives individual attention. Each class studies &  performs on the beautiful Sugar Loaf PAC stage. The building houses a 689 seat theatre, a 250 seat theatre, an Art Gallery and an outdoor arena that can seat up to 3,000! The students are made to feel "at home" and are encourages to participate in performances withing the company outside of their normal class activities.
