See What People Are Saying About Us
We believe every student deserves to have their moment in the spotlight. That is why all students at Riverside Performing Arts are able to perform at least twice per year.
Each of our performances is sponsored by the Northwest Performing Arts Alliance, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing performance opportunities to members of the community. Whether it be in a professional auditorium or on our in-house film and sound stage, each student is given their time to shine.
