  • Ovation School for the Performing Arts
    All veterans of the entertainment industry, the instructors at Ovation School for the Performing Arts don't believe in just instilling acting, singing, or dancing skills into their students. Instead, they impart all three, turning students of all skill levels into triple threats of stage and screen. Designed for kids and teens aged 5–18, the nonprofit's twice-weekly sessions are divided into 45-minute blocks whose subjects include acting, singing, and dance styles such as hip-hop and tap. Ovation also hosts private lessons focused on voice, piano, and guitar.

  • Greg Dean's Stand-Up Comedy Workshop
    Greg Dean, author of Step by Step to Stand-Up Comedy and an instructor since 1982, mentors groups of hopeful humorists as they glean tips on effectively busting guts in four-hour workshops. During the Introduction to Stand-Up Comedy course, which accommodates up to 25 people, participants learn the basic architecture of jokes—from setup to punch line—and how to write funny premises. Greg also guides beginners to overcoming stage fright and developing their own comedic voices, instead of mimicking the styles of famous comedians like Jerry Seinfeld or Ellen DeGeneres. Apprentices will discover ways to riff and interact effortlessly with audiences, which can improve overall public speaking skills for doctors, members of the clergy, and lawyers.

  • Riverside Dance Academy and Performing Arts
    Across the sun-soaked floors, toddlers twirl and scuttle, joyful in their imitation of ballet teachers who instill in them discipline and classic technique. Starting with students ages 2.5 and older, highly trained artistic directors Rachel Swinson-Jacinto (formerly of New York's American Ballet Theatre and San Francisco Ballet School as well as a former principal dancer of Inland Dance Theater) and Quincy Jacinto (former principal dancer with Ballet Pacifica and Philippine Ballet Theater) lead dance classes in their homey studio. Ballet instruction is set up for all ages—including one-on-one coaching for professionals—as is contemporary, jazz, tap, and hip-hop dance. The team also runs musical theater and acting classes, as well as yoga and Zumba to create more well-rounded performers.

  • Actors Youth Academy
    At Actors Youth Academy, working-actor instructors follow the Michael Chekhov method, which emphasizes imagination, concentration, and straightforward guidance as the most effective way to learn the ropes of acting in film and television. Classes are divided into three levels: beginner, advanced, and professional, and students are placed based on their ability. Beginner acting classes cater to kids or adults who want to dip a toe into the drama pool, advanced sessions are for actors preparing for an agent, and professional classes welcome those who have already booked a job or audition and need some extra guidance. All classes focus on preparing youths for a career in the film and television industry.

  • Premier Musical Theatre
    More than just a training program, Premier Musical Theatre aims to prepare students for professional careers in the musical-theater industry while supporting their growth as artists.

The sessions culminate in a full musical-theater production that gives students a chance to show off in front of casting directors. Though students are expected to take their work seriously, no prior experience is required, and applicants don't have to take part in auditions or Pippin trivia contests to get in.

  • PopRock Academy
    The aim of instructors at PopRock Academy is to translate kids' enthusiasm for the performing arts into a disciplined, authentic practice.

During classes, workshops, and camps, they cover a range of topics including film acting, instrument playing, popping and locking, and even music theory. At the end of a curriculum or camp, kids can showcase what they've learned for family and friends during a live show.
