Welcome to The Church Performing Arts!
We are a community of performing artists, backstage team members, and fans of the performing arts who are dedicated to telling the story of God’s love through various forms of productions. There are many opportunities to get involved with the Performing Arts:
- -Performing Arts classes offer training in acting, singing, dancing, filmmaking, graphic design, production marketing, technical arts, and much much more!
- -Serving in some capacity behind the scenes or on a production team (hair, makeup, props, costumes, stage hands) helps make our productions great!
- -Annual productions range from large, Broadway-style productions to shorter sketches and special segments for conferences and events.
TCPA offers classes over the course of four sessions throughout the year: Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer. These weekly classes run for ten consecutive weeks, with the exception of our summer session. A variety of classes are offered in drama, voice, and dance. Specialty classes vary per session. At the end of a TCPA session, everyone is sure to come away with improved skills in the area of emphasis. During the last week of class, a high-energy showcase is presented by each class to demonstrate to other students, family, and friends what they have learned.
Classes are for ages 8-100 years old. From no experience to a lot of experience; classes will refresh and challenge individuals to continue their growth in the performing arts and/or try something new for His glory. At TCPA we create an uplifting, Christian and encouraging environment for you to learn and grow in the arts, all while bringing glory to God.
