About World of Performing Arts
WPA was established in 1976 by Sheila Lindley, who was a dancer herself and had a life long dream of creating a passionate and meaningful dance experience for all students. The studio attributes its success to high expectations, discipline, dedication and commitment. Under the guidance of our dynamic and qualified staff, WPA is dedicated to providing a technical foundation while guiding students toward self-confidence and promoting integrity and a passion for dance.
We invite you to come and experience WPA where our training is of the highest quality while developing meaningful
