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.


Class Schedule: 2:30-5:30pm on Sundays (Spring 2021)

January 24 - April 18, 2021
(10 classes)

For Advanced Middle School and Upper Elementary Students. A dynamic training class that
introduces students to individual audition techniques, advanced group acting training, and
song and dance. The Climb is designed to give our middle school students the tools to
“climb to the top” of their goals as a performer. 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 instructor.
3. Musical theatre and jazz choreography with Danny Miller.
4. Dynamic guest teachers and master clinicians.
