The Parthenon Classical Arts Center exists to provide a nurturing and educational atmosphere that encourages healthy student development and professional success in the performing arts. Since 2012, we have continuously expanded our community outreach programs and scholarship offerings and have brought in world-renowned faculty to assist in the development of our students. PCAC has also produced four full-length ballets, “The Nutcracker”, "Sleeping Beauty", "Cinderella", and “The Magic of the Lamp” with a new, full-length ballet added every Spring.
This coming academic year, PCAC will be presenting the holiday ballet, “The Nutcracker” (November 25-27) and the classic ballet, “Coppelia” (April 21-23) in addition to world premiere choreography in the 2017 Student Showcase (June 3-4).
PCAC is proud to be a vendor for the charter school program, "Visions in Education”. www.viedu.org
