What We Do
Sparrow Academy of Performing Arts (SAPA) is an enterprise focused on performance education. It is designed to take children from a beginner level of music and performance knowledge to a moderate level. From this level they can further build their skills and understanding through another institution, or simply enjoy living with better self-confidence, self-expression, and capacity for performance art. Lessons are available on request for a broad range of performance art, including popular styles of dance, music, acting, musical theater, and fundamentals such as theory and music history. Limited spaces available, currently in a small private home studio. At SAPA, we value and pursue Creativity, Confidence, and Self- Expression
