The University Center for the Performing Arts is South Florida’s premier independent performing arts school. This year marks our 36th season of serving our community with the highest standard of performing arts education.
Our faculty of resident artists offer students of all ages and backgrounds the opportunity to learn and develop technique and performance skills in the areas of acting, dance, voice, and music. Class time is fully dedicated to learning skill and technique and improving overall performance levels. All students are individually observed, evaluated and corrected in a nurturing and positive environment.
Performance opportunities are available for students wishing to develop their performance abilities and implement a strong technical foundation in a theatrical setting. Students may become involved in performance workshops, student productions, and various concert events. The UCPA also serves as home to several professional performing arts companies including our very own resident dance company, ImpulsiK which presents many concerts, and theatrical events as well as many industrial and corporate events.
