As you arrive at FRSPA (our students have affectionately named us "Frispa") you notice the difference as soon as you walk through the door. It's hard to put your finger on it but you can feel it. Maybe it's the smiles on the faces of our students. Maybe it's the laughter mixed with music that rings down our long hallway. Perhaps it's the buzz of excitement created by learning something new. That difference is what sets FRSPA apart from every other music and dance school in HRM.
Founded in 2002 by Virginia Cox, The Fall River School of Performing Arts is a family run, performance based, music and dance school located in the former Windsor Junction Elementary School. We offer lessons for all major instruments and standard dance styles and our instructors are experienced teachers and seasoned performers. Private lessons are tailored to the needs of each student and our staff are truly passionate about the work they do. We welcome students young and old and several members of our staff have previous experience creating specialized curricula for students with special needs.
Because FRSPA values public performance as part of a student's education, our staff of experienced musicians and dancers is highly motivated to make those experiences overwhelmingly positive to help instill a lifelong love of performing. Our teachers help their students prepare for public performance by teaching not only technical skills, but also focus, practice techniques and strategies to deal with nerves and anxiety that always accompany live performance. We never get tired of seeing our students experience that "performance rush" for the first time!
Our students travel from Bedford, Halifax and Dartmouth, Beaverbank, Lower Sackville, Middle Sackville, to Mount Uniacke and from Windsor Junction, Fall River, Wellington, Waverley, Oakfield, Enfield and Elmsdale to Shubenacadie.
Come and visit our little school and join our family of performers!
