Studio PAVAS offers music, dance, drama students in their musical theatre production and classes. If your child has ever dreamed of singing, dancing or acting on stage, Studio PAVAS, the Performing and Visual Arts School is the studio for them!

“We’ve produced 14 musical theatre productions over the past years, including Anne of Green Gables, Annie, The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Footloose, High School Musical and others,” says Suzanne Zakoor, Director/Owner of Studio PAVAS. “Our coordinators of music, dance, and music theatre programs are always creating a revue show to showcase the acting, singing and dance talent of our students. We are one of the first and one of the few studios in the area that offers musical theatre classes which combine dance, singing and acting. If someone is a triple threat, they are likely to get an audition and then be cast in a part; as opposed to someone who does only one discipline.”

An important aspect of the musical theatre programming is learning how to avoid stage fright. “Preparation and practice is the key to any live performance and we also eliminate some of the stage stress.”

Students attend weekly rehearsals on Sunday afternoons over and above attending classes. Musical Theatre production classes usually run for eight months.
