The Preparatory Department

Like you, Palm Beach Atlantic University knows that music, dance and theatre can profoundly and positively change the lives of children. That’s what inspires our preparatory department, which has a reputation as one of Florida’s top music and dance preparatory departments.


We welcome children ages 5 to 18 who want to make music, dance and theatre an integral part of their lives. We will provide a deeply fulfilling learning experience, as well as excellent training for the pre-college student.
