Summer Intensives & Musical Theatre Conservatories
The Academy's two summer programs (Conservatories & Intensives) are a remarkable opportunity, providing experience and exposure that simply can't be obtained in any of our other offerings during the year and is an excellent opportunity for students to not only prepare for next season's opportunities and further develop and explore the joy and excitement of theatrical craft and artistry with extended summer hours; but they also provide students a chance to enjoy time fostering friendships and taking a break from their normal high pressure, hectic school year and audition season routines, and have some fun doing what they love or will surely come to love.
Our Summer Conservatory Programs are week-long (5 day) programs that focus on one or two specific arenas of theatrical craft and artistry, such as acting, singing, dance and/or improv and provide students a chance to focus more specifically on areas they want to improve and excel in or gain a footing in (such as in our Beginner's Musical Theatre Conservatory).
Our Summer Musical Theatre Intensives, which are divided into three-week (15 day) programs comprised of three options: Intensive I (Ages 10-16, Intensive 2 (Ages 13-18), and a condensed Intensive I (8 Day option - Ages 10-16). These intensives focus on the application of theatrical craft and artistry in all major arenas of performance: improv, acting, dance, and voice. Participation in one of our conservatories is a great chance for students to demonstrate their talent on a grand scale, and allows them to develop at their own pace in a supportive and constructive environment , working on material that is age and skill appropriate, while affording students a chance to also push and test the boundary of what they think is possible to help them unlock their hidden potentials.
