Amazing experience here! It is a safe, fun and professional! I think of of NPAC as a workshop because the kids learn so much from Miss Lori. Not only about how to put on a fatastic theatrical performance as a group but also on how to be the best they can be as individuals. It is amazing how much a child can stretch and grow as a performer after just one show here. ❤️

The best decision I ever made was to enroll my daughter at Naples Performing Arts Center. The team at NPAC led by Lori Oliver are professional, knowledgeable and engaged in teaching kids the arts but also to be better people. My daughter loves every minute she gets to spend at NPAC and has made friendships and learned lessons that will last a lifetime.

My three daughters have been part of Naples Performing Arts Center for over 5 years. This is their home away from home. Lori Oliver and her outstanding team of vocal, dance and acting instructors are absolutely amazing. This organization is about building children up and teaching them that they are capable of reaching for the stars.

Naples Performing Arts holds a special place in many hearts, for good reason! The entire staff, especially Lori Oliver, believes in each and every child and teaches them the tools to believe in themselves and to know they can conquer anything. Musical theater has been a blessing in my daughters life. She has learned so much about the arts, but so much more about herself! Life long lessons, and lots of love, are just some of things to expect here. And loving to be on stage for sure!!

Lori Oliver and the whole staff at NPAC are simply wonderful. Aside from the arts - learning to act, sing and dance - the children learn so much more! We are blessed to have found this program, our daughter has grown and learned so much...about theater but more importantly, to believe in herself!

Naples Performing Arts Center is one of those places that your child will feel is like a second home. Lori has a way of making each child feel accepted, respected and loved. The life lessons that happen here are just as important as the acting, dancing and singing.
