It has been my dream for many years to open a performing arts studio in my hometown of Newland, NC, where students can study dance, acting, and music all under one roof in a safe and friendly environment. Numerous studies have found that training in the arts benefits young people by helping them develop creative thinking, teamwork, discipline, and self-confidence. With this in mind, it is the mission of Blue Ridge Performing Arts Academy to provide the highest level of artistic education for students in the Avery County area, to enrich their lives and to help them reach their fullest potential as artists, leaders, and citizens.
