OUR STORY

Natick Academy of Performing Arts (NAPA) is a non-profit committed to helping performers, of all ages, find a creative outlet in the Boston suburbs.  NAPA instructors offer a unique and highly personalized method of learning, creating an environment to nurture, educate, and encourage creative individuals to achieve the highest level of success on and off the stage.

 

NAPA began through the hard work of Holly Chin who began this journey over 10 years ago by creating the Holly Chin Vocal Studio and State of Mind Performers. She has taught hundreds of students over the years to help them become adept and confident performers.

 

Through NAPA's outreach, our non-profit hopes to use Ms. Chin's talents and expertise to strengthen the community and widen the creative footprint in the greater Natick area.
