*In-Person Class*


Students will learn triple threat skills by studying creative singing, storytelling, musicianship and movement.  An additional Beginner Musical Theatre dance class completes this age group’s training. 

Students have the option to take part in a featured number in the fall and spring musicals.   Students who choose the "with production" options will continue to refine their vocal, acting, and dance skills as they prepare to participate in a featured group in InnOVATION Arts Academy's production of The Little Mermaid Jr. in March (Filmed/Hybrid.)


Alls students will wear a face mask and distance while in the building.

The Little Mermaid Jr
January 22 - March 17, 2021
*Hybrid Musical*

InnOVATION will produce The Little Mermaid Jr as a mixed media musical.  The musical will feature a filmed performance, shown on a big screen as a ticketed event.  In the hybrid approach, some rehearsals will take place online and some will take place in person.  All students must participate in in-person filming.  Students will wear a face mask and distance at all times while in the building, but we will film in larger groups with masks on ensemble members but not on leads (exception: puppet characters can stay in masks at all times unless it impedes clarity of text.)  We will pre-record ensemble vocals and ensure sufficient distancing (10 feet from cast, backs to cast, outdoors or in large, high-ceiling auditorium) when individual leads remove their masks for filming. 

Due to COVID restrictions, we will limit the number of students who can participate.

Beginner Rehearsal Schedule:
Thursdays from 5:00-6:30pm February-March 11, 2021

Tech Week and Performances:
Filming the week of March 8-12 from 5-10pm with additional filming on March 13 from 9am-5pm and March 14 from 1-6pm.  Please hold March 15-17 as additional filming days if needed.  PreK and Beginners will be called for specific, limited times that are currently TBD, but we will likely aim for their normal class times (ie. Saturday am or Thursday 5-6:30pm.)

Film to be released/red carpet opening in April TBD.  Performance tickets will range in price from $15-$20.

Class Requirements:
• No prior training required.
• Students will need black jazz shoes for in-person classes and performances.
