The University Center for the Performing Arts is South Florida’s premier independent performing arts school. This year marks our 36th Anniversary of serving our community with the highest standard and best value in performing arts education for children and adults.

Our faculty of Resident Artists offer students of all ages and backgrounds the opportunity to explore and challenge their artistic capabilities. With more than 75 scheduled weekly classes, students are given a wide range and variety of classes and workshops to choose from. Class time is devoted to developing skill, technique and performance abilities in a healthy, positive environment. Each student is observed for proficiency, attitude, and approach as they train in their specific area within the performing arts.

Performance opportunities are available for students wishing to develop their performing abilities and stage presence. Students may become involved in performance workshops and student productions. The University Center frequently holds concerts and recitals in its black box studio theater. Opportunities for performing include the Adult Actor’s Workshop, Children’s Ballet Theatre Project, Musical Theatre Workshop, Theatre Performance Workshop, Adult Student Concerts, and end of term presentations.

The University Center for the Performing Arts also serves as home to the Paul L. Rodensky Foundation for the Arts as well as our own professional resident dance company, ImpulsiK.
