Pre-Conservatory Education


Pre-Conservatory is for students who are ready to try out technique training and move beyond performance-based classes. It is a great option for students transitioning out of the elementary programs or as an entry point for students who are new to our programming.

Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, these classes will be facilitated online. We will continue to stay up to date on local, state, and federal recommendations in order to determine when classes will be shifted to an in-person format.


The Pre-Conservatory Program’s introductory technique-based training and musical theatre repertoire will use your child’s energy and enthusiasm for the theatrical arts to introduce, engage, and inspire. The curriculum builds on and expands from elementary classes toward the full Conservatory program.
