Enriching Lives through Culture and Knowledge


At Hamilton Academy of Performing Arts, we offer 4 streams to allow students to maximize their potential.


Dance Stream
Dance Stream

Our Professional Dance Program is catered to individuals that are looking to take dance seriously and are willing to commit the hours and dedication required. Our main focus at the Academy is to help students reach their full potential in every discipline they choose to take.


Theatre Stream

The drama program will focus on building creativity, emotional depth, and expression through movement during various activities and exercises pulled from acting conservatory practices. Drama is the practice of expression that is fun and enriching for all students. By studying vocal techniques, movement practices, script work, and memorization, students will build confidence and develop interpersonal skills as well as have fun learning lines and becoming characters. The uses of improvisation, Shakespeare, and even storybook tales will be used in the drama classes to help provide a well-rounded understanding of the craft.


Music Stream

Hamilton Academy of Performing Arts is dedicated to providing exceptional musical education. We have been an art institute for over 13 years, and we have an exceptional group of teachers that are eager to teach. Our school offers classes for all levels and ages. We believe that one is never too young or too old to learn to appreciate music through its instruments or sound


Vocal Stream

At Hamilton Academy of Performing Arts, we are pleased to announce the starting of a new after-school vocal program. Through learning how to sing you will learn performance skills, and theory, and build confidence when performing in front of an audience. This is a professional vocal program that teaches singers how to use their bodies as their instruments in the right way.
