I really appreciate the Charlottesville Performing Arts School. I was blown away by how much my 6 year old has learned! So much poise! I can tell how hard the Director personally works for a healthy environment for the children, affordable for the families, and also accessible. I think it is wonderful, and I wouldn’t have my daughter go anywhere else.
