Strut Your Stuff at the Patel Conservatory at the Straz!


Theater, dance and music, oh my! If your child can’t stop singing tunes in the car or loves performing Cinderella for you every night, classes at the Patel Conservatory at the Straz Performing Art Center may be the perfect fit! A child that grows up participating and appreciating the arts has shown to develop into a well-rounded adult. It gives them the chance to creatively express themselves and make friends who may have the same creative abilities! The Patel Conservatory “provides the finest performing arts training in an inspirational setting by giving students the tools to: dream, reach, discover and create the performing arts; integrate them into everyday life; and contribute to the community”, and it’s right in our backyard! Downtown Tampa is flourishing with the arts: from museums to theaters. It also hosts the annual Florida State Thespian Festival! The Patel Conservatory is the perfect start for your child to get their tap dancing or poised pointe foot in the door!

There are tons of shows to watch too! In addition to the big hits being performed at Morsani Hall (i.e. Wicked), there are plenty of shows being performed by kids, for kids!

Camp-A-Palooza—February 25th. Join fellow theatre-loving families in an afternoon of free fun! There’ll be performances, snacks, and games the kids will be sure to enjoy! You can also take a tour of the Patel Conservatory and watch a class in action, giving you a taste of the great things being offered here.

All shows and classes can be found on the Straz website.
