The Maui Academy of Performing Arts, founded in 1974, now reaches 25,000 individuals per year through our many performing arts programs. MAPA continues to allow Maui’s best talent to shine brightly in our professional quality theatre and dance productions.

Vision, Mission & Values

Headquartered in our state-of-the- art facility in Wailuku, MAPA contributes to Maui’s cultural and economic growth by building a community of healthy, responsible and inspired citizens. Using the arts, MAPA changes the world one individual at a time.


We pride ourselves in creating and supporting the highest level of performing arts, both onstage and off. Many different talents and skills are needed to fulfill our vision, and we have created a diverse team of individuals to help us make that vision a reality.


MAPA’s facilities are located in downtown Wailuku; providing dance and drama studios, rehearsal spaces, and scenery/costume warehouses for our organization and the community.


Are you interested in renting our private studios for a rehearsal space, master class, or private dance lesson? MAPA offers rentals in our well-maintained rehearsal space!
