InnOVATION Conservatory features a hybrid approach. Students who opt for in-person classes will take turns participating in classes, alternating between online classes and in-person classes. Students who opt to be online only will receive the same classes, participate in the same productions (by submitting videos of scenes that are rehearsed online) and will not be lonely, as in "hybrid mode," we rotate who is online and who is in-person, so that in-person students are sometimes online, taking class with the online-only students. Certain masterclasses will be online only. In-person students will wear a face mask and distance at all times while in the building.
