“DANCE, ACT, SING AND CREATE"

 “At ZPAC- Stacy Zawadzki’s Performing Arts Center, we strive to bring out the best and strengthen each individual, mentally and physically for a and non-professional and professional track in the arts.  In working together, we will share our educational background, extensive experiences, and talent with every individual to help them pursue their own creative, artistic, or future aspirations. The students' also learn how to create the works of arts themselves through playwriting (the students write the end of the year production), choreography (choreograph their own pieces in the Showcase) and directing (they learn how to direct and behind the scenes). Our Performing Arts Center is welcoming and caring, with a family atmosphere, to help celebrate the arts.

We do not have a recital, we have a production filled with dancing, acting and singing with all ages of 1 1/2 to adult.
