Since 2010, ArtsBridge Summer has given high school performing artists the tools to perfect their craft and audition approach, guided by top college arts faculty. ArtsBridge Summer programs are designed to hone the skills of students who pursue acting, musical theater, and classical music at the college level and beyond.
ArtsBridge Summer offers four programs which are all designed to prepare students for their college auditions:
ArtSong: Students concentrate on solo classical vocal skills within the art song repertoire. The curriculum is focused on vocal technique, diction and language, repertoire, acting for singers, and performance and audition skills.
Dramatic Acting: Students prepare for conservatory-style actor training with the type of rigorous instruction found in top college and conservatory programs. Designed to improve vocal and physical instruments, explore vital acting techniques, and get students fully prepped for the college audition process.
Musical Theater: Students are guided on what it takes to be a well-rounded musical theater artist, from acting to song & dance with an eye on college admission in the performing arts. Rising high school seniors gain valuable insight into technique, repertoire, and preparing for college auditions.
Musical Theater 2: Students receive specialized training on the pillars of musical theater, including private voice lessons, acting fundamentals, and dance for advanced high school sophomores and juniors. Students who are serious about studying musical theater but not quite ready to concentrate solely on their college auditions can focus on their core training and hone their skills.
