Our Mission Statement: To train and inspire students of all ages in the performing arts while instilling the qualities of confidence, self-discipline, creativity & respect for others.

The SPINDRIFT SCHOOL of PERFORMING ARTS was established in 1994 by Pacifica residents and musicians, Martha Phillips-Bootzin & Alexander Bootzin. Martha passed away in 2008 but her legacy remains and is a huge presence in this community we love so much. 2019 will mark our 25th year here in Pacifica. As Pacifica’s only non-profit performing arts school, SSPA has grown into a vibrant community organization. We provide high quality performing arts experiences and training by way of youth performances, classes, private lessons, year-round camps, and school site programs to well over 3000 students each year, in Pacifica and beyond.

We have worked hard to establish roots here in the community by providing a stable base for children to train in the arts with the best artists possible to train them. Because of the overwhelming support by the community, students and families, and the local school districts, we have grown in leaps and bounds over the past 25 years.

We welcome one and all to our Spindrift Family. The experiences your children have here and the friends they make will last a lifetime.
