    Classes include Drawing/Painting, Conservatory Dance, Music Theatre, and Chamber Music. Materials and lunch are included with registration. Full and partial scholarships are available for students who demonstrate artistic excellence and financial need.

    Our registration process includes two steps - Application & Registration.

    Students must complete both steps to participate in the course.

    We require that all students apply for their course of interest by submitting an application, with supplemental materials, before registration.  The materials will be used in the following ways:

    • Reviewed for placement into appropriate levels, if needed.
    • Shared with the course instructor(s) so they may prepare curriculum that meets the needs and goals of each student.

    Once all materials are received and reviewed, another email with a link to register for the course will be sent. The registration deadline for all courses is Thursday, June 1, 2023.
