New Trimester At Franklin School For The Performing Arts

The Franklin School for the Performing Arts (FSPA) begins a new trimester of instruction on Monday, December 14. Registration is ongoing for all programs. Prospective students and families are encouraged to visit the school in downtown Franklin to tour the facilities and try a complimentary class. Founded in 1985 by Director Raye Lynn Mercer, FSPA has been dedicated to the enjoyment of the arts for all ages and to the artistic growth and development of young people. The school offers an extensive roster of classes in all dance disciplines, acting, musical theater, voice, and instrumental instruction, whether for recreational enjoyment or serious study.

FSPA’s Music Department offers voice and instrumental private lessons, as well as group classes with ensemble performing opportunities. Little Music School®, an innovative pre-school music program developed by and taught exclusively at FSPA, teaches children as young as 18 months to play the piano. The Dance Department boasts a premiere faculty of accomplished artists and teachers, with classes offered at all levels in ballet, modern, jazz, tap, hip hop, lyrical and dance for musical theater. Special classes are featured for boys, adults and beginner teens. FSPA’s Drama program provides extensive instruction in acting and musical theater beginning in kindergarten. Ensemble opportunities include musical theater troupes for students in grades 5-12, with annual performance trips to Walt Disney World for select ensembles.
