Fall, Winter, and Spring Academy Sessions
The Springer Theatre Academy continues to offer classes even after summer is over! Classes during the summer focus on overarching skills: musical theatre, improvisation, voice and movement, scene study, and others. Our classes offered during the school year are more specialized and are always different… so be sure to check out our latest class offerings below! During Fall/Winter sessions, students can pick and choose which classes to take based on personal interest. Our Spring Break Academy session features a full-day rotation of classes themed around a different musical each year.
The Springer Theatre Academy offers the following class sessions during the 2017-18 school year:
FALL ACADEMY: Saturdays, October 7, 14, 21 and 28, 2017 from 9am-2pm

Winter Academy offers an opportunity for students to choose specific classes based on their personal interests and to dive more deeply into a specific topic. Whether you are new to the Springer Theatre Academy or a seasoned veteran, Winter Academy has something to offer everyone!
Winter Academy classes are held on 4 consecutive Saturdays: February 3, 10, 17 and 24 from 9am-2pm. Winter Academy has 3 “blocks” of classes: 9:00am-10:30am, 10:45-12:15pm, and 12:30-2:00pm. There are 15 minute transition times between classes, during which students can eat snacks from home or purchase snacks from our concessions. On the final day, each class will end with a short presentation of classwork for friends and family to attend!

This year, our Spring Academy will be inspired by THE LION KING!
During Spring Academy, students of mixed ages will work together on songs, scenes, group numbers and original material from The Lion King in the fast-paced style of summer-stock theatre! Spring Academy offers a full-day (9am-5pm) rotation of classes, similar to Summer Academy. The biggest difference is the intimate class size and that all the class content will be focused around the chosen show!
Whether you have been with us since you were 5 years old or if this is your first time at the Springer Theatre Academy, the Spring Break Academy experience brings something exciting, challenging, and FUN to the table for everyone! No audition is required.
Spring Academy costs $195 for the week. Students will need to provide their own lunches. Payment Plans available. Needs-based Tuition Assistance and Scholarships available by application.
