For those of you who don’t know, Henry Mancini Arts Academy is the tri-state region’s premier provider of classes, workshops, and seminars in the performing arts. It provides opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to study, experience, and appreciate the Dance, Music, and Theatre Arts.
Most Lincoln Park students already know about the Academy, but for those of you who want to know more, keep on reading.
For Theatre majors, the Academy provides voice and acting classes, as well as workshops and master classes. For Dance majors, it provides Tap, Jazz, Ballet, and even Hip Hop (for ages 8-12).
For Music majors, there are community music ensembles, and private piano and voice lessons. All of these classes require some fee, but financial aid is available, and there’s no audition required to be considered for it.
The Henry Mancini Academy is definitely considered an integral part of Lincoln Park. And even if you don’t attend any of their classes, it’s still a great opportunity to have open to you at any time.
Kids from Lincoln Park not only take classes, but some also work there. One of these students is Brooke Jonas, a senior Theatre major from Midland. “I’ve been working there for over a year. I took classes there when I was younger, and it helped me decide to come to Lincoln Park,” she said. “For someone who wants to come to this school it would be a great way to prep, because I took classes before coming here, and I was able to get acquainted with the building and with how things run, so I think it’s great for people who want to apply to this school.”
The registration deadline for the Spring Term is Feb 15, and the tuition deadline is Feb 28.
