What makes Island School of Performing Arts the most unique performing arts studio on the MS Gulf Coast?
ISPA has stepped onto the performing stage, where we continue to make a positive difference on the MS Gulf Coast. We have changed our dance season. We listened to the concerns of our dancers and parents. We do not charge parents a registration fee.
Our dance season runs January - November.
We close the month of June for SUMMER BREAK and continue our dance season after July 4th. Upon returning in July, we officially start dance classes until November with our recital always being the weekend prior to Thanksgiving week in November.
After recital, we will take a WINTER BREAK; closing the month of December. ISPA still maintains a 10 month dance season; it is now more convenient for our ISPA families.
ISPA parents do not PURCHASE their dancer's recital costumes. Our parents RENT all recital costumes at a low cost. If you choose to purchase your little one's first recital costume, we don't mind. Ask us about cost bundling. It's an easy way to help our parents with the many payment options we offer.
All of our instructors maintain degrees or certifications in their respective dance genres and are constantly striving to learn all they can in their fields.
