Whyteleafe Performing Arts Academy was the first institute in Sri Lanka that was started with the intent of using speech, drama, dancing, singing and other aspects of the performing arts to develop the personality of the children. Whyteleafe also focuses on entrepreneurship, public speaking and debating, critical reviewing and team building activities to build the characters of young children enrolled at our academy. Thus the main objective is to create a better citizen for the future rather than just an artist.
It was established in October 2011 by Award winning dramatist and journalist Nalaka Swarnathilake with the goals of:
• Identifying and developing the creative talents of children
• Giving them an opportunity to showcase their talents
• Developing leadership and personality traits of children through the performing arts
The academy also aims to educate the parents as well, organizing events that actively seek the involvement of the parents and students.
