The Las Vegas Performing Arts Initiative offers instruction to students of all ages in drama, voice, dance, percussion, musical theatre and circus arts. LVPAI produces school workshops, and an annual summer program for aspiring young people.
In addition to the annual summer program, LVPAI creates and delivers workshops for schools in Nevada and neighboring states. The workshops are composed of master clases, followed by a Q&A with guest artists, photographs and autographs. The workshops are designed for all levels of experience and vary in length from one master class to multiple days of instruction.
LVPAI is proud to partner with Art Square Theatre, the University of Las Vegas, Encore Performing Arts High School, Walter Bracken Elementary School and Thurman White Academy of the Performing Arts.
LVPAI is proud to partner with schools and award scholarships to deserving young children. LVPAI graciously acknowledges the generous contributions made by the Team Benefield Scholarship Fund.
All of the workshops are taught by Performers, Choreographers and Directors working today from shows including: Blue Man Group, Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Love, The Lion King, Le Reve, Zarkana, Jersey Boys, Mamma Mia, Kooza, Chicago, Mystère, The Jabbawockeez, O, Iris, Michael Jackson ONE, So You Think You Can Dance, and more...
The benefits of art education are numerous and have proven to raise literacy, enhance math achievement, strengthen communication skills, foster diverse cultural appreciation, an nurture a positive school culture and community. By integrating the highest echelon of performing artists into schools, and our city's core, LVPAI works to empower students, schools and communities.
