Plaza Academy’s Expanded Fall Semester Is Right Around The Corner

Plaza Academy has been a blazing success at Plaza Theatre Company. Since expanding the program into a new facility at the start of 2012, interest and attendance has skyrocketed. Our first full semester in the spring of 2012 culminated in a phenomenal recital and our Summer Camps (all 3 of them) were an extraordinary achievement by our students and teachers.

They include courses in a wide range of dance disciplines, vocal performance and acting with classes for every level of experience and ability.
