How many kids will be accepted?

We want to accept as many students as possible into each program. We strive to maintain a minimum of 15 students for every teacher. This allows us to maintain the close student/teacher communication and collaboration that is vital to a performance based program. Because each program is run slightly differently the number of students we will accept varies:

  • Jazz Camp: 80
  • Rock and Rap Academy: 60
  • Drama and Playwriting: 20
  • Visual Art: 60
  • Creative Writing: 20
