YOUNG ARTISTS CONSERVATORY

For More information please email our Education Director Beth Christensen at Education@playhousemerced.org

The Conservatory at Playhouse Merced is thrilled to announce our new, interactive ONLINE CLASS SCHEDULE!

For May, our ONLINE Conservatory classes are back! In addition to some of April’s favorite classes, we are excited to introduce our ALL NEW offerings, as well as some new Instructors! Some of these are classes we haven’t even offered during our year at The Playhouse yet, and we can’t wait to share them with you.

The classes we might be most excited about are our new Musical Theatre Workshop Classes. Broken up into two ”Companion Classes”--one 30 Minute Voice Class, and one 30 minute Dance Class--our Musical Theatre Workshop students will learn a popular song during their Voice Class, and then learn choreography to that song in the Musical Theatre Dance Class. Students do NOT have to take both! However, those that do will be invited to record their performances for the PHM Social Media Pages in The Fall!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our May session will start on Tuesday, May 5th and will run for four weeks via Zoom, ending May 28th. That means that each class will “meet” for four weeks in a row, and pricing is for the 4 classes in that offering (ie, 4 Tuesdays of Musical Theatre Workshop I at 4:00). Want to take more than one class? Great! Multi-class discounts are available for anyone wanting to take more than one class a week!
