Dancers Center for Training is now Performing Arts Louisville!
Be a PAL
After 4 years of successfully training actors, dancers, and singers we needed a name that reflects all we do to build skillful performing artists. Performing Arts Louisville is the best training option for performing artists because of how we train and our philosophy.
For all performing arts disciplines, we believe in ACTING first. Whether you are a ballerina or a pop vocalist you have a role to play. Understanding that role in terms of acting and motivation is crucial to each performer’s development. It is also why our students will always interview and audition well.
Based on the training our own instructors received and programs like the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, American Ballet Theater, and Michigan University, we have developed a dance program that truly trains well-rounded, versatile, safe dancers.
A song coach is much different than a technical voice teacher. We make sure our students are trained with proper technique and placement so that they will grow and develop their own unique sound.
THE BARBARA F. CULLEN MUSICAL THEATRE TRAINING PROGRAM
Musical Theatre is wildly popular in our region. To be successful you must become what we like to call the quadruple threat. Meaning that you train in the three disciplines of theater, voice, and dance, with the fourth element combining all three with the emphasis on acting. We understand that all performers have their strong areas and other areas that need to be discovered – or areas that need a more rigorous approach in training. PAL also understands that to be competitive, you may need other skills beyond the traditional actor, singer, and dancer skills. PAL offers training in Acro and other dance disciplines such as Hip Hop and Latin dancing to make you more marketable. Students in our training program find success in admissions to performing arts schools, summer intensives, and they are cast in local and regional amateur and professional productions!

Engage student about why they perform and help them achieve their goals
It’s simple—we care why you train and we care about the quality of your training. Your development is more important to us than the number of shows you perform or the roles you land. Each student is evaluated before they are placed in a class and students self-evaluate at the end of each session, working in collaboration with their instructors on the goals for the next session. With multiple class options for the casual student who might have social or fitness goals in mind, to the serious student who will audition for college programs or professional roles, we have all the tools to help you succeed. Our students develop skills that go beyond plies, time steps, arias, or monologues. When you train at this level of professionalism, you nurture self-confidence, technique, and artistry. A performing artist is truly no different than any other athlete — no athlete shows up for a game without practice!
