The Innovative Arts Academy

Innovative Arts is a leader in arts education for Youth servicing the GTA by putting on high quality musicals and teaching the art of singing, dancing and acting within the rehearsals and performance of a musical. Each time we held auditions for our musicals, we were always met with students who wanted more. Students who asked us “How can I get bigger roles?” “How can I do this as a career?” “What do I need to get into my art high school or my dream post secondary school?” “How can I be the best?”

While we are unable to put on our musicals we have invested in creating a program that helps you answer these specific questions.

 

 
We are proud to introduce the Innovative Academy.

​Pick your Major, join a Squad and let's get started!

 

IT'S TIME TO TRAIN

Musical Theatre Majors work in small groups that we call Squads. Each Squad is made up of around 6 students and 2 teachers to give each student the opportunity to learn in a class environment with their friends but also receive personalized vocal coaching to get incredible results. Our Musical Theatre Academy students are also strongly encouraged to improve their dance and performance skills by joining our weekly Dance and Music Theatre Clubs at no additional cost. By the end of the Fall session, students will have a binder full of performance-ready songs, dances, scenes, and will be ready to conquer the next audition and take the stage at the end of season Recital this December!

CONTENT / AGENDA

Each class is different, but always includes private training (1-1) and small group training (6-1). With the style changing each month, it keeps the challenge fresh for everybody!
  • Learning 3 Musical Theatre Solos
  • Character Study (Take on Your Dream Role!)
  • Mock Audition (Experience a musical audition and callback)
  • Personal growth consultation
  • Learn dance combos
  • ​Final Recital (December either Online or In-Person)
The purpose of the Squads is to challenge each student and their individual growth by giving them the materials, techniques, and classes they need to take actionable steps towards their personal artistic goals and career goals. Students leave their classes feeling empowered, inspired and ready to take on bigger challenges with confidence. 

This is the class for any musical theatre lover who is ready to take their skills to the next level.
 
 
BECOME A DRAMA MAJOR
 
This class is for young actors who are looking to explore Acting for Stage and Screen. Our goal is to give our students the skills they need to take on any script! Beginner and experienced actors will receive great training and have an incredible time mastering their craft and exploring the art of acting with their friends. Students will learn how to analyze text, how to create a character, and how to use these skills to work from an open, vulnerable space. Students will reach the next level and experience growth as actors, ready to take on the next challenge. 
 

DRAMA PROGRAM DETAILS

Providing the west GTA with quality teaching and services since 2012, Innovative Arts is passionate about changing the way actors see the world. Learning the Art of Authenticity is a requirement to compete in the film industry, and the effects it has on youth are positively life-changing.

Zoom Classes or In-Person
Students will meet for 2 hour sessions each week. During the class, they will start with a check-in to discuss new ideas, challenges, and questions, then the interactive lesson will begin with a new focus each class. 

Each student will work on a scene picked specifically for them with a partner in the class. They will have semi-private scene coaching every week alongside exercises that help build their understanding of text analysis, play, tactics/actions, framing and environment.
