Performing arts academy offers variety of programs

Positioned as the finest training facility in Southern California, Scripps Performing Arts Academy (SPAA) is well known for inspiring its students to be great performers and great people. The faculty is dedicated to providing a creative and nurturing environment that is technically proficient for children of all ages and abilities. Through a variety of professional and entertaining productions, both classical and original, SPAA inspires the philanthropic heart in everyone. They have helped to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for worthy organizations throughout San Diego.

SPAA offers a pre-professional and recreational ballet program. Ballet is the foundation for all forms of dance and the performing arts. Even athletes find tremendous value in a ballet class. Additional cross training is offered in Jazz, Tap, Modern, Contemporary, Hip-Hop, Voice, Piano and Musical Theatre, providing a unique balance unmatched in Southern California.

Exceptional summer camps for children of all levels and abilities as well as a pre- professional program for those who want to accelerate their technical dance training and theater experience or just want to have a great summer. Fall registration is now underway and auditions for the annual community favorite of “The Nutcracker” are scheduled for late August.

In addition to a full-length presentation this year, SPAA will return to the Grand Del Mar Hotel and Resort for another “Grand Tradition” with an abridged version and a Nutcracker Holiday Tea. Experience the difference and register for a free trial class today.
