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.

For High Schoolers and Advanced Middle Schoolers. A dynamic training class that balances
individual artistic advancement with group and ensemble training, The Edge is designed to
give our students “an edge” in their field. Students will receive:
1. Individual audition training and intensive acting and vocal training using various
methods with Mary Joy Nelson.
2. Group training in acting for stage and on camera with Jeff Day or another film acting professional.
3. Musical theatre and jazz choreography styles with Danny Miller.
4. Dynamic guest teachers and master clinicians.
• Students who have previously taken an Advanced Musical Theatre Performance class may register without an interview.
