July 10, 2018 – Local students are headed back to school this August to their favorite classes of all: dance, singing, acting and more in thrilling fall classes at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts!
In addition to producing full-scale professional family shows throughout the season, the Theatre’s Conservatory offers year-round learning opportunities for kids and adults of all ages, including a fall semester of fun-filled classes taught by Broadway-caliber theatre professionals. The Theatre is currently enrolling students (kindergarten through adult) in all levels of dance, voice, acting and musical theatre, with classes that start August 13.
“We’re proud to offer a host of engaging and challenging programs this fall, including a College Audition Prep program for high school students with professional performers Rebecca Timms and Paul Carlin,” said Julie Rowe, the Conservatory’s director of education. “We also have a new Hip Hop class with Jawan Hayes, a master class with leading youth talent agent Nancy Carson and a special CATS prep class for middle and high school students taught by Timms and Brian Andrews, both of whom performed in the original production together on Broadway.”
Students come from as far as Miami, Wellington and Fort Pierce to study at the Conservatory. The connection to the Theatre allows students the opportunity to perform on the Theatre’s stage and work alongside professionals both onstage and off, with hands-on workshops and master classes that offer students an opportunity to learn first-hand from nationally known directors and Broadway performers, agents and local instructors. The Conservatory boasts world-class classroom facilities that include state-of-the-art dance, acting and voice studios.
An exclusive program is the Theatre’s “In the Style Of” series, which offers an extra-special opportunity for Conservatory students to be selected for free, unique dance workshops with cast members from the Theatre’s upcoming 2018/19 musicals Disney Beauty and the Beast, Mamma Mia! and West Side Story. Attendees will be selected via lottery, open to all currently enrolled students.
The Conservatory offers a range of ballet, jazz, modern, tap and hip hop dance classes, as well as courses in improvisation, musical theatre and once-a-month musical theatre audition techniques classes. Students enrolled in the Conservatory’s signature Musical Theatre Production classes for the fall semester will perform in The Best of Broadway Revue on the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s stage in December. Students enrolled for the spring semester will perform in the full-scale musicals Madagascar A Musical Adventure JR and CATS in May. Enrollment fees are all-inclusive, covering all costumes and performance-related costs.
The second class of the Conservatory’s premier Professional Training Program will also start their second year of the program this fall. The only two-year professional training program in Florida affiliated with a professional regional theatre, the program’s students train 35 hours per week with Broadway and South Florida professionals for all aspects of performing, including acting and acting for the camera, voice and speech, musical theatre styles, multiple forms of dance, music theory, Shakespeare, stage combat, piano fundamentals, career prep and more. A new program in 2015, the program’s second class will perform the full musical All Night Strut: A Jumpin’ Jivin’ Jam on the Theatre’s stage in July 2019 prior to graduation.
