Established in 1991, the Professional School for the Arts (PSA) offers classes and training in voice, music theatre, dance and acting for all who wish to pursue a career in the performing arts or anyone who has the dream of performing onstage.
Our faculty and staff is drawn from Broadway and Hollywood to help provide our students not only the skills and training, but the practical advice necessary to be successful in the performing arts.
Additionally, PSA provides specialized college preparation classes for those students who are preparing to enroll in a performing arts college.
PSA is located 30 minutes south of Hollywood, in Old Downtown Torrance and serves all of the South Bay Cities and Southern California.
PSA offers the most welcoming, supportive, and professional workspace, where comfort and positive reinforcement are of utmost importance. PSA has helped shape me into the confident and passionate artist I am today.

Minor in Producing
I was a sophomore in high school when I first came to PSA and I was completely lost and had no idea where to begin. Thanks to the immensely hardworking and supportive faculty at PSA I was able to get into a respected Musical Theatre BFA program.
