Ovation Academy of Performing Arts has opened it's doors! There will be an Open House event from 2pm-6pm for anyone interested in the Academy or After-school program. Tour the school, meet the instructors, find out more about the programs offered and more! There will be an Information Session detailing the Full-Immersion and Homeschool Co-Op programs from 6pm-8pm.
Ovation Academy was founded 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. We focus 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.
Using a university model, Ovation offers full-day (8am-4pm Monday-Friday) education for grades 6-12 which emphasizes arts integration taught by certified teachers and industry professionals. This option allows students to complete middle and high school requirements through a partnership with parents and teachers utilizing onsite mentoring and guidance. In addition, students select a major (Dance, Acting, Musicial Theatre or Production & Design) to focus their technical training and are encouraged to explore other aspects of the performing arts outside of their major through enrichment courses. Each teacher tracks grades and provides a certificate of completion at the end of each semester. Students will graduate with a Conservatory Transcript.
Ovation Academy offers a Homeschool Co-op which allows students to take Major or Enrichment courses at their own discretion and allows them to participate in field trips and community outreach. These students will do their academic studies off site and without the guidance of Ovation Academy.
Ovation Academy also offers after-school lessons in each discipline which are open to all passionate performers starting at various age and experience levels. After-school enrichment, productions, dance competitions and recitals are done through our artistic partners; Plano Dance Theatre and CenterStage Youth Theatre. Both of these organizations share our core values and high level of performance expectations.
Ovation Academy additionally offers Adult training courses in the evenings taught by leading industry professionals.
