Performing Arts Field Trips

AAPA provides field trip opportunities for students interested in exploring the field of performing arts. These may include school day field trips, and one overnight field trip each year that corresponds with our Spring Break, to introduce students (grades 5-8) to professional workshops and career options in the arts (including technical arts). 


Day Trips (Grades 5-8):


Dates and shows to be announced. Previous trips include National Junior Thespian Conference (ThesCon), UNC Choral Festival, and DCPA's 2023 production of "To Kill a Mockingbird"


Spring Break Overnight Field Trip:


The cost is in the range of $2000-$2500 and is subject to change.  It is often driven by travel expenses, accommodations, and excursions (which vary from year to year).
