About Us

Peoria Area Performing Arts Studio

offers a high quality music, dance and acting program.  

Vocal Ensembles

Our show choirs are a unique blend of musical theater and show choir.  We offer both competitive show choirs as well as recreational.  

Recreational classes begin at age 3 through Junior High and our selective competitive program is available for students in Junior High (Vocal Velocity) and High School (Soundwave)

We also offer the only private Madrigal singers in the Peoria Area.  Each December these auditioned a cappella singers present a Madrigal Dinner to celebrate the Christmas Season.

Acting program

Our acting program offers excellent opportunities to study both traditional techniques as well as improvisation.  Classes are available for the beginner in elementary school all the way to our advanced High School program.
