CAPAS is a community outreach and non-profit program founded by artistic director, Lola Louis. It began with a small number of piano and voice students in 1985. The program offers professional instruction in music, voice, drama, dance, art and musical theatre.
Lola Louis’ Creative and Performing Arts, Inc. (CAPAS) is a 501(c) (3) studio-based creative and performing arts program. CAPAS aims to develop the minds, bodies, and spirits of children (four years old and up) and adults by utilizing the creative arts process.

Classes are conducted at 755 East 235th Street, Bronx, NY. The program offers professional instruction in music, voice, drama, dance, art and musical theatre. These classes are offered to ages 3 and over. We believe its never too late to start, therefore, senior citizens are welcomed. We also offer classes to autistic and some children with special needs.
Our youth are encouraged to broaden their horizons by reading, thinking critically and participating in field trips to performances and places that develop the imagination. We believe that during the creative process, CAPAS students will gain a sense of accomplishment through hard work, discipline and fun. This sense of accomplishment can develop self esteem and confidence, which we hope will assist in the stimulation of the left hemisphere of the brain.
