"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 the Leesburg Ukulele Club. Join a group or class, come and jam and be a part of the performing arts in Leesburg!
ACOUSTIC ART LOUNGE
3RD WEDNESDAY of the month 6:30 p.m.
The LCFA provides an atmosphere where people can make and share the creative things that juice them all while hanging out in a safe urban environment. Share your music, dance or sing, perform clean comedy, show your short film or photo presentation. We only ask that in order to keep the space "chill" that you avoid politics, religion and profanity.

The RiverWind Flutecircle meets monthly on the 2nd Thursday of every month at the Leesburg Center for the Arts.
