Dakota Academy of Performing Arts
The Dakota Academy of Performing Arts (DAPA) at the Washington Pavilion is a program designed to inspire young theatre students in the Sioux Falls area to practice perfect, play hard and perform better than they ever thought they could.
DAPA is designed for students who desire a creative, challenging atmosphere with direct instruction and ensemble learning. With a team of theatre professionals mentoring and teaching for DAPA, students are motivated to perform with passion, dedication and excellence. Students prepare to give professional-level theatre performances in the community throughout the year.
