Teen students should prepare a song of 32 BARS OR LESS of a Broadway standard. Pre-teen students should prepare a song of 32 BARS OR LESS of a Broadway standard, and bring comfortable clothes and shoes to dance in. At the dance call, a faculty member will teach a combination (a short series of steps) which the students will then perform, usually 3 or 4 at a time.
Our West End studio will open at 8:30 AM to accommodate working parents with this need. We stay open until 5:30 PM, and ask that all children are picked up no later than 5:30 PM. If a child is picked up after 5:30, a $20 fee will be assessed, per child, for each occurrence.
For Acting, Voice, and Performance class, students will need a three-ring binder with pockets and pencils. Street clothes are acceptable attire.
For Dance, female students should wear a leotard and tights with jazz shoes. Male students should wear properly fitting white t-shirts and sweatpants, tights, or shorts. ALL STUDENTS MUST BE COVERED TO AT LEAST THE MID-THIGH.
Students can pack their lunches or they can order their lunch for $6/day. There is a refrigerator and a microwave available in the student center. There are also vending machines with water, soda, and snacks.
As an actor, one of the most important tools you will need is an 8x10 photo of yourself called a head shot. To this end, we are supplying a photographer at a greatly reduced cost to take the students' head shots. This is in addition to the tuition. Appointments will be made during the first week of camp. You will receive more information on this the first week of camp.
