Who we are
"It is the best academy to not only find your inner actor, it helps you to be more human, to create with your own imagination, create your character, with your originality and free your person. #Thinkoutofthebox"
Anahi Loetz - Santa Cruz, Bolivia
"HAPA me abrió muchas puertas, expandió mi mente, conocí gente maravillosa no solamente tuve amigos sino tambien tuve familia, una familia nueva. Me han enseñado que la edad no tiene límites cuando uno sueña y hace lo que más le gusta. Ese es el propósito de HAPA, enseñarte que no hay límite para tus sueños."
Karen Moreno - Santa Cruz, Bolivia
