About Arizona Academy of the Performing Arts

Core Beliefs
As a 501(c)3 organization, programs and services of The Academy are designed for motivated individuals who desire the most from their efforts in the performing arts.  We are committed to creating a positive learning and performing experience for all participants, and to providing members with the knowledge and inspiration to take their art to the next level.


Our Programs
The Academy attempts to assist and enhance current school programs and fill a void in some areas of public arts opportunities.  Each year we serve over 500 children of all ages and adults who are young at heart in our programs that include: “The Academy Drum and Bugle Corps”,  “The Academy Summer Youth Guard”, “The Academy Winter Youth Guard”, and “Phenom” SoundSport Ensemble.


The key to success for most non-profit is volunteerism.  These are the groups of people with the greatest commitment and passion for the mission of the organization.  Without question that is the key to the success of the Arizona Academy of the Performing Arts.  You will find this passion and commitment for our mission from our Board of Directors, Event Committee Chairs, as well as the parents and drum corps fans and volunteers.
