Academy Enrollment


That’s the CenterPoint Academy motto. “You Belong Here!”

And nobody knows that better than the incredible people, ages 3-18, that we train in performing arts, including musical theatre, tap & jazz, ballet, and voice.

What we really teach them, however, is how to be the awesomest version of themselves.  While the musical theatre, dance, and voice training we offer is top-notch, provided by the best local working artists, the end result for the vast majority of our students isn’t the Broadway stage. Instead, we use the arts to teach lessons that matter in any facet of life – confidence, discipline, leadership, self-esteem, teamwork, friendship, and creativity.  Our students learn these universally relevant skills and become assets wherever they go – at school, at work, in the community, at church and at home.

On top of this, the Academy provides unique performance opportunities to these students on the CenterPoint Theatre stages, performing for more than 10,000 people per year, in over 100 performances of more than a dozen different shows.

Learn all about us by clicking around here, including information about our classes, our instructors, and how to enroll.

You can also visit Why we do what we do to see what people are saying about the Academy, and Academy Photos to see our students in action.

We can’t wait to play with you!
