WELCOME TO EPAC
As a performing arts center, our goal is to instill a respect for the art of dance, while providing the highest quality training possible. Our professional faculty has a refreshingly humanistic approach to training and preparing the student for a meaningful and long lasting relationship with the arts. Eagle Performing Arts Center was founded in 2004 and has been at the forefront of promoting dance in Idaho. Students at EPAC receive excellent dance training while developing a love for the art of dance. Through performances in the greater Treasure Valley, our dancers share their passion for dance with the larger community.
The school is a wonderful place to study and mature as a young artist. Many students have gone to dance professionally and study at colleges and universities, while others have pursued academic interests while maintaining a meaningful relationship with dance through adult classes and patronage of the performing arts.
SCHOOL YEAR PROGRAM
The ballet curriculum, for students in first through twelfth grades focuses on immersing students in classical technique that provides a solid foundation not only in ballet, but also for other forms of dance. Jazz, modern, and musical theater students all use ballet as their fundamental training.
Through weekly training in the studio and opportunities to perform in end-of-year recitals and with IRB in Fall Gala, The Nutcracker and A Dance Collective, students will develop musicality, coordination, discipline, and a versatile, classical technique, as well as an in depth understanding of the history and philosophies of dance.
The summer months present a wonderful opportunity to study dance. We offer a wide variety of programs during the summer for the very youngest dancers to the pre-professional student.
In addition, we have classes for the beginner, intermediate, and advanced students (ages 9 and up) all summer long on a drop in basis.
