North Texas Performing Arts offers classes for students age 3-18. With 30 years of experience in performing arts education, our classes are taught by extraordinary directors, actors and singers who have worked everywhere from Broadway to L.A.

At NTPA, we believe that theatre changes lives. We strive to teach all of our students not only how to act, sing or dance, but also how to be better human beings. All students who participate in our programs will be taught the 10 Characters of North Texas Performing Arts.

North Texas Performing Arts strongly encourages all participants and patrons, who are able, to get vaccinated to prevent the spread of Covid-19 within the NTPA family.
