Announcing a new Master Class – with Broadway performers!

Five years ago, we began offering master classes as a way for students to experience all areas of the arts taught by Professionals in their field. These 2-hour classes are energetic, inspiring, and engaging.

It’s been a while since our last master class, but we have several in the works for you before the end of the year. This one, coming up in 3 weeks, will be led by two Broadway veterans who are ready to assist aspiring performers with tips and tricks of the trade! Not to be missed. Students can choose to participate fully (getting one-on-one coaching) or as an observer (it’s amazing how much you can learn by watching!).

Here are all the details!


Coming March 14: A Broadway Master Class

performing your best at auditions and beyond


A scene from “An American in Paris” featuring Kirsten Scott

Join us for an exclusive Master Class with Broadway performers, Matthew and Kirsten Scott, who will be in town performing in “An American in Paris” at the Providence Performing Arts Center March 13-18.  Matt and Kirsten will focus on the art of auditioning, assisting students with song choices and monologues on an individual basis, while providing overall insight to the craft of being a Broadway Performer.

While many of our classes are still underway (as part of our 12 week class sessions), or just finishing (as part of our 8 week sessions), there are a few classes that are still taking registrations because they begin in March! These classes provide excellent opportunities for students to explore different areas in the arts, in an encouraging and comfortable atmosphere.

  • Scenic Design Intensive: A 6-week crash course tackling the intricate details of designing a set for a production, for ages 12-18.

  • TIP Crew: three workshops provide training in everything backstage – from sound to lights, stage equipment, sets,  and special effects. A must for anyone interested in the stage! For ages 10-18.

  • Recreational Ballet: Highly recommended for all performers, ballet builds confidence and self awareness, which changes how you carry yourself. The atmosphere is low-pressure and inspiring. For ages 12-18.

  • Machine Sewing 2: The second level to our Machine Sewing Class, this class will continue to offer students the basics of machine sewing. Students who have not taken the first level may contact the instructor about jumping in. For ages 10-18.

  • Quilting: For the more experienced seamstresses, this class will cultivate in an original quilt to take home!

  • Tap: An AWIP favorite! Even students with no experience will come away tapping their toes, having learned all kinds of combinations.
