What's the best part about having a professional theatre in your backyard? The chance to experience dance, singing, acting and more in exciting fall classes at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre Paul and Sandra Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts.
In addition to producing full-scale professional family shows throughout the season, the Theatre's Conservatory offers year-round learning opportunities for kids and adults of all ages, including a fall semester of exciting, fun-filled classes taught by Broadway-caliber theatre professionals. The Theatre is currently enrolling grades K-12 in all levels of dance, voice, acting and musical theatre, with classes that start August 18.
"Whether you're going into ballet for the first time, looking for an advanced dance class or taking a voice lesson, this is the place for an innovative and high-quality arts education experience in a positive, safe and supportive environment," said Julie Rowe, the Conservatory's director of education. "Over 600 students attend our Conservatory annually, and we have world-class classroom facilities that include state-of-the-art dance, acting and voice studios."
Students come from as far as Miami, Wellington and Fort Pierce to study at the Conservatory. The connection to the Theatre allows students the opportunity to perform on the Theatre's stage and work alongside professionals both onstage and off, with hands-on workshops and master classes that offer students an opportunity to learn first-hand from nationally known directors and Broadway performers, agents and local instructors.
An exclusive program is the Theatre's "In the Style Of" series, which offers an extra-special opportunity for Conservatory students to be selected for free, unique dance workshops with cast members from the Theatre's upcoming 2014/15 musicals Fiddler on the Roof, The Wiz and LES MISERABLES. Attendees will be selected via lottery, open to all currently enrolled students.
The Conservatory offers a range of ballet, jazz, tap and hip hop dance classes, as well as courses in play creation, guitar, audition techniques and musical theatre singing. Students enrolled in the Conservatory's signature Musical Theatre Production classes for the fall semester will perform in The Best of Broadway Revue on the Maltz Jupiter Theatre's stage in December. Students enrolled for the spring semester will perform in the full-scale musicals Dr. Doolittle Jr. and Sweet Charity in May. Enrollment fees are all-inclusive, covering all costumes and performance-related costs.
And children and teens aren't the only ones having fun at the Conservatory.
