We Inspire!

Welcome to Inspire Performing Arts Academy! Since the inception of West Coast Music & Dance FX in 2005, and Limelight Productions in 2008, hundreds of students have taken drama, dance, music classes, and have acted in our plays. Join us now to be part of our exciting evolution; expanding from a studio into a full service Performing Arts Academy. We are growing and now offer workshops, dance competitions, acting festivals, adult classes, and more!

At Inspire Performing Arts Academy, we strive to teach not only performance skills, but also real world lessons in teamwork, organization and commitment. Inspire Performing Arts Academy’s programs prove that learning can be fun. The camaraderie of students of The Arts is a lasting bond that participants will carry into their adult lives. Creating priceless memories for students and their families, each class, lesson, and production allows them to shine individually while bringing something larger than themselves to life.

As a parent we realize you have a choice between several different music and dance studios and academies. All programs are not the same. We constantly renovate and improve our facilities and programs. We also provide ongoing training to our staff to ensure we are always providing our students and parents with the best experience possible.

Currently, we offer lessons in: Preschool Dance, Ballet/ Pre Pointe, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Musical Theater, Theater, and Adult classes. We offer music lessons in: Guitar, Piano, Voice, Choir, and Group Guitar. We are proud to offer exciting Summer Camps & Classes as well as birthday parties.

IPAA and Limelight also produce quality theatrical productions. All are cast that audition in our shows. We also have performance opportunities for our students throughout the year at local events, and we produce a professional haunted attraction for Swank Farms. We are fortunate to have a growing community of artists, performers, and tech crew who are involved with us. We aren’t just a school; we are a performing arts experience.

Feel free to stop by during our business hours, or call with any questions. Thank you for your business, we appreciate your patronage and are honored that you chose us.

3 Things Every Parent Should Know Before Choosing a Dance Studio

5 Ways to Get The Most Out of Music Lessons

A Parent’s Guide to Music Lessons

"Dance has given Kendall self confidence, structure, and the ability to work together on a team with other dancers. The most important thing is that she is having fun expressing herself with something she loves, dance. Taryn wants everyday to be a dance class day, and dances at home any chance she can. I feel fortunate that Miss Jessica and West Coast Music & Dance FX have given our girls such a positive experience in helping to form their lives."
