There’s a reason we here at The Studio don’t call them “classes.” Classes are boring.  🙂 Studio Sessions are 4, 6, or 8-week “sessions” geared toward a specific skill, theme, or group. Using unforgettably interactive teaching, these Sessions have kids buzzing for days about what they’ve done and what they’ve learned. Studio Sessions truly embody our mission…excellence while having fun. We are thrilled to add a number of excellent Studio Sessions this Fall, which will challenge kids to stretch their creative wings in the areas of music, acting & theatre. These 6-week “blocks” are perfect to try things out and see how you like it! Read on to find out how you can get involved!

Spring 2018 Studio Sessions & Workshops

What: Audition Workshops divided by skill level
Who: Anyone who wants to master the art of the audition. These workshops will help build confidence, teach kids what to expect at an audition and generally strengthen audition technique
When: Saturday, April 7th from 12 – 3 PM
Cost: $20 for one workshop; $35 for two 

Beginner Workshop:

12 PM – 1 PM Parents & Auditioners

This workshop is for our newbies. Maybe you’ve done 1-2 shows but you just want all the audition tips you can get… maybe you’ve done zero shows and want to know what to expect. This one is for you. Parents and children are both welcome (and encouraged!) to attend. After all, a lot of this, especially with younger kids, falls to our wonderful parents!

You’ll learn:

  • What makes a great audition
  • Where to find audition songs
  • How to find tracks (and if you pick a song we already have a track for, we’ll email it to you for free!)
  • What the whole audition process at The Studio is like
  • What to do with those audition jitters

And so much more!

Dance Workshop

1 PM – 2 PM 

You’ll learn how to pick up choreography quickly, how to perform the audition dance with confidence and how to increase your skills in the area of dance.

Advanced Workshop:

11 AM – 12 PM

All attendees must bring a prepared song and track.

This workshop is for our veterans. If you’ve got a few songs under your belt and you want to learn how to take your audition from good to great, this one is for you. Kids will perform their songs in front of a very safe, supportive and encouraging group of other auditioners and will receive positive feedback as well as constructive ideas on how to improve. This is invaluable feedback.

*Roles are not guaranteed based on attendance at these workshops.
