Don’t miss out on the most exciting & educational performing arts workshop in the country! Turn Up The Music National Tour, presented by The Young Americans, is making a stop here to work with our students for 3 Days. Available to all students 3rd-12th grades.

What can your students look forward to? This high-energy comprehensive performance workshop covers everything from vocal techniques, dance, and comedy improvisation, to stage movement, sound, lighting, and more. Learning a show in 3 days helps students learn to work together, to respect each other’s strengths, and to discover their own potential.

Classes, Self-Confidence, & Leadership: In addition, the students will take classes in the areas of voice, dance, song writing, and performance (acting and improv).

After three days of intensive performance instruction, it’s show time! The Young Americans cast of 45 perform the first act, and then to everyone’s astonishment, of the students perform the second act. This show is jam packed with choral, jazz, contemporary, musical theatre, rock n’ roll, and more. Your students will be the ones in front singing, dancing, and performing the variety show and solos they’ve learned in just two days.
