Dec. 11, 2013 (Jupiter) – Ever wanted to try singing, dancing – or perfect your skills?
The Maltz Jupiter Theatre Paul and Sandra Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts has just the class for you, with exciting spring classes taught by Broadway-caliber theater professionals beginning Jan. 6.
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 spring semester of exciting, fun-filled classes. The Theatre is currently enrolling students of all ages in all levels of dance, voice, acting and musical theatre.
“The Conservatory is committed to providing an innovative and high-quality arts education experience in a positive, safe and supportive environment,” said Julie Rowe, the Conservatory’s director of education. “Through all of our classes, students of all ages gain self-confidence, leadership and team-building skills.”
The Conservatory offers ballet, jazz, tap and hip hop dance classes, as well as courses in playwriting, audition techniques, improv, Shakespeare, stretch and strengthening, piano and guitar. Students in the Conservatory’s signature Musical Theatre Production class will perform in The Pajama Game on the Theatre’s stage May 16 – 17.
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.
Upcoming opportunities include a master class with leading New York City talent agent Nancy Carson, who will give insider’s advice on being a professional actor on Broadway (Dec. 14).
A new option this year is the Theatre’s “In the Style Of” master class series, which will offer an extra special opportunity for Conservatory students to be selected for free, unique dance workshops with cast members from the Theatre’s season musicals Annie, A Chorus Line and The King and I. Attendees will be selected via lottery, open to all currently enrolled students. The first “In the Style Of” dance master class will be taught by Annie cast member and dance captain Lauren Kadel (Dec. 15).
And children and teens aren’t the only ones having fun at the Conservatory. Adults of all ages also participate year-round in the Conservatory’s acting, tap dancing and singing classes. Classes are offered in the evening throughout the year to accommodate adults with busy schedules, in addition to a full range of daytime seasonal classes offered in the spring. Classes range from song and dance to tap and musical theater singing, as well as a book writing class and play reading club.
The Conservatory has two upcoming vacation camps for children: a two-day, comedy-themed Laugh Factory camp (Jan. 2 – Jan. 3) and a five-day, Treasure Island spring break camp (March 17 – March 21) and a one-day Improv holiday camp (March 24).
The Conservatory’s staff includes Brian Andrews, Jay Johnson, Anna McNeely, Sarah-Helen Land, Kristine DiMartino, Lea Roy, Kenneth Kay, Kim Cozort Kay, Ricky Nahas and Mary Elizabeth Rich.
Spring classes begin Jan. 6, and registration is now open. Classes range from $15 an hour to $180 and up for the semester. For information, call (561) 575-2672 or visit www.jupitertheatre.org/education.
