Sudbrink Performance Academy
We are a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Charitable Organization.
At Sudbrink Performance Academy, we motivate, challenge, and prepare our students for work in the performing arts. Our structure primes young performers for collegiate programs and the real world. The responsibility and cooperation learned can be applied to any career. Students of Sudbrink Academy are ambassadors in their community, and uphold a new standard of excellence in the arts, and all aspects of their lives.
Growth at Every Level...
We believe in giving all young performers opportunities - the beginner who needs a place to start, as well as the advanced performer who needs a challenge. By maintaining a by-audition-only policy for some of our offerings, advanced students are given the next level of experience they crave. Meanwhile, we offer our beginner students opportunities where they will develop individually or alongside their peers and become the advanced class of tomorrow.
At Sudbrink Performance Academy, we take our students under our wings and develop them with the guidance we would give our own children. Our students truly become part of our family.
We can't wait to meet you!
