MAKING A DIFFERENCE!                        

The Performing Arts School of Central Pennsylvania, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is proud to continue to fill a need in central Pennsylvania for high-quality ballet and orchestral instruction and performances. As an organization, we are committed to encourage more people to participate in the arts, nurture each student’s potential for success and inspire them to enjoy the arts for life.

Ballet and Music are costly art forms. Ticket revenue and tuition cover only a portion of our annual operating costs. By becoming a Friend of PASCP, your tax-deductible donations go directly into our artistic and educational programs, including scholarships, outreach, and performance costs, enabling us to continue the high-quality teaching and performances that our community has come to expect.

PASCP has outgrown our current studio space, which contains 3 studios.  It is now too small to serve our students the highest quality training that we are committed to providing.  This January, we acquired an additional 1,100 square feet of office space in which we will be adding much-needed fourth studio, as well as office space and costume storage to accommodate our student base.  Additionally, the monies raised for this project will help provide financial scholarships for students in need and continuing education for our faculty.   All of these are necessary for PASCP to serve our youth in the capacity in which we know is required for their success.

The renovation to our current space is costly.  As a non-profit organization, we must be financially responsible and have made the fiscally responsible decision that we will not go into debt to complete the renovation.  It is our hope and goal that the support of community members, arts advocates, local businesses, and our own student families will support our renovation, which needs to be complete before the start of our 2016-2017 session, beginning in September.

 How can you help?  PASCP is contracting a local artist to paint a mural on a large wall just inside the studio.  The mural will feature those who have donated to the renovation through the purchase of an engraved brass leaf.  Each leaf will cost $500 and may also be purchased IN HONOR of someone (a teacher, a grandparent, friend). 

To purchase a leaf, please download the form here.
