"The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls." --Pablo Picasso.
Art is a creative form of expression, and the performing arts provides an outlet to express creativity by stimulating one or more of our five senses. LCFA has partnered with Melon Patch Community Theater, Central Florida Film Festival, Riverwind Flute Circle, Celebration Dulcimers, various dance instructors and many regional songwriters and performers to bring Performing Arts to our co-create space. We host special events and programming including second stage productions produced by Melon Patch Community Theater and short film viewing, and film educational workshops as well as monthly gatherings for the Riverwind Flute Circle, Celebration Dulcimers, and Drum Circle. On the 2nd Friday of the Month, the "Art of Song" features songwriters from the Central Florida area. Reserve your seat, join a group or class, and be a part of the performing arts in Leesburg!
