Next Stop Broadway’s The Academy announces its 2023-2024 season, ushering in a plethora of acting, singing, and dance classes for students in Grades K-12.
The school-year program is meticulously designed to allow each budding artist to thrive in their training, get personally involved, garner individual attention, and experience the glitz and glamour of show business.
Starting on Monday, September 11, The Academy runs until April 2024. Students will showcase their skills in full-scale Broadway-style productions and recitals on a professional stage.
The Academy Broadway Series
Pioneered with an independent study format, The Academy ensures students can soar and hone their skills seamlessly. The curriculum involves intensive classes, interactive workshops, and hands-on rehearsals in three primary areas: music, dance, and acting.
Every student is assured a role, whether a lead, supporting, or ensemble part, aligning with their current capabilities as they carve their unique style.
The results are evident as students employ techniques, culminating in a riveting performance of a full-scale Broadway-style show at the season’s end — a testament to their perseverance and dedication.
Here’s a sneak peek into the productions:
- High School Musical: Catered to Grades 4-7. Tuesdays and Thursdays, 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
- Legally Blonde: Designed for Grades 8 and above. Mondays, 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
The Academy Ensemble Classes
Professional guidance helps build confidence and self-worth in students while mastering entertainment intricacies. The fun isn’t sidelined either, as every class promises engagement for all age groups in Grades K-12 and climaxes with a recital at the end of the season.
