    The program offers intensive study in theatre, dance, voice and audio engineering for the young artist-in-training. Courses include concentration in technical theatre, acting techniques, directing, ballet, modern and jazz techniques, choreography, music theory, vocal health, song preparation, digital recording and arts history for each discipline.

    Performing Arts Academy students are academically challenged with 160 credits required for a high school diploma.

    Our students are encouraged to continue their education in the arts after graduation, but will also be given the tools and resources to audition for professional companies. Students interested in a competitive and challenging environment must complete the necessary application process, which includes an entrance audition.

    The Summer Experience
    This two-week workshop provides an opportunity for aspiring young artist to strengthen their area of specialty– Dance, Voice, Acting or Audio Engineering.

    Each day begins with an intense session in the major area of study. A half hour lunch break is followed by two, 45 minute workshops in the other two specialties. Through exposure to these three performing arts disciplines, the student has the opportunity to improve as a well-rounded young performer. Our students will develop an appreciation for each art form.

    The last day of the workshop is a day of performance. Parents and friends are invited!

    During the workshops, students receive instruction from master teachers in:

    Acting: The theatre arts program is composed of both acting techniques and monologue/scene study. Actors are required to bring a memorized monologue from a published play for the first day of the workshop.

    Voice: Voice instructors will coach students individually on solo repertoire as well as in an ensemble setting. This process will build healthy vocal technique and appropriate characterization.

    Dance: The dance summer program is geared to enhance the technical training of a skilled dancer in Ballet, Modern, and Jazz techniques while gaining an understanding of dance theory and history. A minimum of 6 years of continuous dance training is required for grades 6-8 and a minimum of 8 years for grades 9 -12.

    Audio: Students will experience many areas of the Audio/Technical Theatre field. Students will have hands-on experiences with live sound, basic lighting, sound wave characteristics , and studio recording. Students will be required to bring a notebook for important information regarding these projects. This course has been designed to serve as an introduction to our Audio Engineering program.
