Smith Elementary's Singing Surfers
The OC Register recently featured Neil Reyes's Singing Surfers from Smith Elementary at their art center performance in Downtown Huntington Beach! Click here to check out the article.
The Huntington Beach Academy for the Performing Arts in collaboration with the Huntington Beach City School District has created "APA Kids" and "APA Jr" programs to provide pre-professional arts education to its students. 
 
Your students will be able to enrich their visual and performing arts education and provide new opportunities for them to explore their artistic side.
