Eagle Performing Arts Center
“One of the strongest dance training programs in the Northwest” - Idaho Statesman
Eagle Performing Arts Center is a ballet academy that focuses on classical ballet and also offers classes in character, tap, contemporary, and adult ballet.
Founded in 2004 by Cathy and Jeff Giese, EPAC’s goal is to instill a respect for the art of dance, while providing the highest quality training possible. EPAC’s professional faculty has a refreshingly humanistic approach to training and preparing students for a meaningful and long-lasting relationship with the arts. Students at EPAC receive excellent dance training while developing a love for the art of dance. By performing throughout the greater Treasure Valley, dancers share their passion for dancing with the larger community.
Long time faculty member and former Associate Artistic Director of EPAC, Elizabeth Keller (Liz) is officially the new EPAC School Director. “My vision for EPAC is simple,” said Keller, “I want to continue the successful, professional-level ballet training in a nurturing environment with new energy and help instill a lifelong love and passion for the art of dance and the performing arts. EPAC is also home to Idaho Regional Ballet and Dance for Parkinson’s Idaho.
