Lufodo Academy of Performing Arts (LAPA), is an educational institution that delivers world-class hands-on training in acting and performing arts disciplines. Our rigorous practice-based curriculum is geared towards producing accomplished creative professionals who will raise the standard of stage, TV and Film production in Nigeria

LAPA commenced operations in 2009 with a pilot scheme of intensive short courses run over a six-month period, covering elocution, movement, presentation for radio & camera and other aspects of the actor’s craft. The success of these short courses, along with a high demand for customized training in performance and presentation skills, clearly showed the necessity for a fully fledged academy of performing arts.

Now, after considerable development, and with formal accreditation by the National Board of Technical Education of Nigeria (NBTE), we proudly offer a full time, 2-Year conservatory program at the end of which graduating students will be awarded a National Innovative Diploma in Performing and Media Arts.

Our intensive and highly practical curriculum, culminating in a nationally-recognized certification, makes us an excellent fit for secondary-school leavers and budding industry practitioners seeking to pursue the craft of stage and screen acting to the highest professional standards.

In tandem with our full time educational program, Lufodo Academy of Performing Arts also operates, LAPA Consult, through which we provide bespoke, intensive, elocution and presentation training for executives, professionals and corporate bodies.
