LOYAC Academy of Performing Arts (LAPA) is an academy that empowers the talented youth of Kuwait to develop their skills and nurture their passion through programs in the fields of theatre,
dance and music. LAPA was founded out of our deep belief in the therapeutic qualities of Art in all its forms.
LAPA is the first private Arabic academy for performing arts in Kuwait.
It started in 2003 and was officially established in 2010 and offers the youth workshops in acting,
music, singing, and dancing.
Performing arts develops youth's potential for self-expression and communication and helps them understand and appreciate life. In addition to elevating their verbal and physical
abilities, performing arts contribute to enrich imagination, improve concentration, and better understand emotions; it both enhances team work and collaborative decision making.

Headed by Mr. Patrizio Billio, the LOYAC AC Milan Soccer School is considered to be one of the pioneering soccer academies in the region.
Players under this program are granted the ability to train under the expertise and knowledge of a highly qualified international coaching staff,
while competing with other local soccer academies. Over the years, the LOYAC AC Milan Soccer School has trained hundreds of players, many of whom have gone
on to represent our school in several international tournaments. Amongst the academy’s many honors is the proud privilege to be labeled as the first Arab team

Al Shaheed Park
On the periphery of one of Kuwait’s oldest and most historical ring-roads; the First Ring-road, lays Al Shaheed Park. Al Shaheed Park covers 230 Acres of Greenery
in the heart of Kuwait City, making it the largest urban park in the country. The park is the first step into reclaiming The Green Belt, which was built to create
the transition between the old city of Kuwait and the new expansion of Kuwait City. Developed by Al Diwan Al Amiri and managed by Loyac (a pioneer nonprofit organization
focused on youth development), the project of reviving the park grew into a serious devotion for all those working on it. It is the kind of devotion that passionately
and professionally narrates the story of a land, a history, and a culture.
The Park offers a fully integrated development with cutting-edge architecture and art works.
Its Amphitheater diversifies into various cafes and restaurants, different kinds of gardens (Oasis Garden, Museum Garden, Seasonal Garden and others), walkways
(Visitors and Pedestrian Passages), and an outdoor theater along with performance centers for concerts, exhibitions, art-shows, and other kinds of events.
Al Shaheed landscapes also hold multiple historical zones such as the Memorial zone and the Museum zone.
These are zones filled with art pieces and monuments such as:
- The Constitution Monument
- The Bird Aviary
- The AlThekra Museum (portraying Kuwait’s major wars;
Al-Rigga Battle, Al-Sreif Battle, Al-Jahra Battle, The Gulf War, and others)
- Old City Gate
In short, Al Shaheed Park is a multifaceted park that has the ability to engage everybody and every age group.
It is a place to invest individual time, as much as enjoy family time, with its various historical and contemporary architectural sites,
outdoor and indoor activities, and cultural and entertainment programs.

experience because we do not believe in this so called ‘box'. Imagination is knowledge, and this what we go by and follow on a daily basis.
