Act. Dance. Sing. Perform.

Founded in a genuine love for the performing arts, we provide comprehensive training in theater arts and dance as well as additional offerings including Youth Musicals, dance teams through our Alta Vista Dance Company (AVDC), TAM Backwards (Theater Arts Company) and Summer Programs. Students receive superior training, expand their boundaries, gain valuable skills – all while building friendships and memories. PAAM equips young artists with a well-rounded arts education and the confidence to take on whatever path they choose.
