CAPAS is a community outreach and non-profit program that started in the living room of founder and artistic director, Lola Louis.

Classes are conducted at 755 East 235th Street, Bronx, New York. The program offers professional instruction in music, voice, drama, dance, art and musical theatre.

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 reflect in academic work as well.

Our students may learn that through the creative process they will gain knowledge of themselves and their vast capabilities. By working toward artistic excellence, students can gain an understanding of the values and rewards of persistence and effort.

Our classes are kept small, so that each student receives individual nurturing and attention from our instructors.
