Ovation Academy is a new innovative education option for performing artists in grades 6-12 in the North Dallas Area. Ovation Academy was founded as a Non-Profit educational organization to provide a home for performers to pursue their passion of the Arts through professional style training which provides the technique, life-skills, experiences and connections necessary to succeed in the industry. Ovation is a school for students who are currently working professionally or aspire to work in theatre, dance, film, television, music, etc. Often times these students cannot attend traditional education models due to the attendance regulations but Ovation has created a hybrid model where students can work professional and complete their diploma requirements concurrently. Ovation Academy focuses on each individual student and their unique journey. Ovation Academy strives to produce knowledgeable, respectful, empathetic and impactful artists who will contribute to their communities and to the performing arts industry. Training in the disciplines of Dance, Acting, Musical Theatre and Theatrical Production & Design as well as the business of being a professional artist is available. Ovation students are trained to be highly technical artists with a sense of community and humility. Philanthropy and community outreach are central themes at the Academy. The school has a culture of family, positivity and support. They bring in Guest Artists to assist in the high-level training the students receive. They create networking opportunities with industry professionals and college recruiters as well.
Ovation Academy provides a Full-Immersion Conservatory for students to train in their art 8am-4pm with academics included on site. The Academy also provides a Homeschool Program for students to earn Fine Arts credits as well as an after school Community Outreach program full of classes, productions and camps for ages 3-Adult.
During their first year as an Academy, Ovation students achieved numerous accolades. At the Texas Thespian Festival in November 2018 an astonishing 32 Ovation Academy students qualified for the National Thespian Festival. The students also won First Place in the Dance Challenge event at the convention. Myah Durham, a Junior at Ovation Academy, won First Place at the Regional August Wilson Monologue Competition hosted by SMU earning her an all expense paid trip to New York City where she made the top 15 in the Nation and performed at the August Wilson Theatre on Broadway. Multiple students have been cast in commercial, film and television projects. Nine Ovation Academy students were accepted to train this Summer with Broadway Artist Alliance in New York City with the top coaches and performers in the business. In addition to their competitive success, Ovation Academy produced several spectacular productions this year through the Conservatory and their Community Outreach Program.
