Pathway to Institute

Pathway to Institute

The Pathway to Institute program is a school-year musical theatre training program open to audition for Grades 5-12. This 23-24-week school-year program is designed to give students the foundational training needed to thrive in the Institute program, while creating an inclusive and focused community. In the Pathway program, students enroll for three consecutive sessions of classes from September until May. Class offerings include acting, singing, and dance. All students who audition for the Institute are also considered for the Pathway program; this program may be preferred by students newer to theatrical training or new to one or more core foundational areas of study. We take time to give individual attention and focus on each student’s growth during the year, enabling students to track toward placement in the Institute.

Foundation classes include Acting, Singing, and Dance. Students will be placed in either the high school or middle school section.

Foundation classes meet September-May from approximately 4:00pm-9:00pm on Wednesdays.
