Classes and Workshops

Performing Arts Society of Acadiana (PASA) works whenever possible to extend the impact of the artists who visit our community as performers by hosting master classes, public classes and workshops with our visiting artists, or in preparation for their residencies in south Louisiana.

Often working in association with local experts and/or schools, PASA provides local students and artists with extraordinary close contact with visiting performing artists of the highest levels of artistic achievement.
