Welcome to Our Site
In 2003 the Performing Arts Alliance was formed by a
group who were interested in enhancing the
performing arts within The Villages. Their goal was
to obtain a state-of-the-art performing arts center
(PAC) that would provide a facility for showcasing
the talents of The Villages’ performers in a
comfortable environment for all patrons.
In 2006 our name was changed to the Villagers
Performing Arts Alliance (VPAA) and we had several
more people join the steering committee.
Our Mission Statement is as follows:
|| To promote the arts for The Villages
and surrounding communities by providing
artistic, cultural, educational, civic,
social and entertainment opportunities;
|| To provide a state-of-the-art facility
whereby patrons can enjoy such opportunities
in comfortable and handicap-friendly
|| To provide a venue for the residents of
The Villages and surrounding communities to
share their talents and skills as both
performers and educators;
|| To provide an opportunity to introduce
cultural, technical, and artistic components
of performing arts into the curriculum of
students from surrounding communities.
After eight months of VPAA efforts, we are at a
critical point of going public with our strategy for
success. All legal and organizational aspects for
ensuring a successful organizational effort are
either in place or will be in place in the very near
Consultation with experts for seeking non-profit
status, developing our strategic plan, and
implementing a fund-raising program has produced a
viable approach to reaching the goal of our
mission. The administrative, managerial and
technical expertise of the VPAA Steering Committee
members has proven invaluable in our efforts.
Weekly Steering Committee meetings are held,
frequent e-mail correspondence takes place,
and guests are invited to advise and assist us.
Many talented residents of The Villages have joined
us in this effort. We seek even more individuals
who would like to be involved in this worthwhile
project of helping us "bring the dream to reality".
Please consult this web site for updates on our
plans and our progress.
Thank you for your interest.
The VPAA Steering Committee.
