FALL 2015 UTAH FESTIVAL CONSERVATORY OFFERINGS!


Currently accepting enrollment for fall semester conservatory courses! Registration form can be downloaded here. Our fall semester runs from September 14 – December 18. We have some wonderful offerings this semester and some fantastic new instructors to introduce to you!

Here's what's NEW at the Conservatory this semester |

NEW INSTRUCTOR – KELLY MCGAW |
A native of Los Angeles, Kelly completed the comprehensive professional actor training program at PCPA Theatrefest in California and is currently finishing her BFA in Acting at USU. Kelly is a true triple threat and I had the pleasure of working with her this summer in the Old Lyric productions of Noises Off (she played the tall and hilariously vapid Brooke) and The Mystery of Edwin Drood. She is a phenomenal performer and brings a lot of talent and energy into the classroom - the students are going to LOVE her! Kelly will be teaching Beginning Acting and Beginning Musical Theatre - both for the 9 - 12 age range - so DON'T MISS IT!

NEW INSTRUCTOR – LUKE SHEPHERD |
Luke and I also just worked together at the Old Lyric; he was the Musical Director for The Mystery of Edwin Drood, and he worked with my wife, Vanessa, last year as the Musical Director for A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, also at the Lyric. He has a BA in Music Education from USU and is an amazing musician and educator. Luke will be accompanying and assistant teaching both Beginning and Advanced Musical Theatre classes.

NOW OFFERING 7 & 14 WEEK COURSES |
There are some courses that function better as Quarter-long classes (7 Weeks) and some that will remain Semester-long (14 week) classes. Check the schedule to see how each class is offered: "Quarter" or "Semester"!

TAP CLASS IS BACK |
Dawna Campbell will once again be teaching the ancient art of "hoofing it" - the class will be tailored to the skill level of the participants at the instructor's discretion, though previous dance and or tap experience is advantageous.

Here is what's the SAME at the Conservatory |

  • Still offering AWESOME classes taught by amazing PROFESSIONAL faculty like Kevin Nakatani (Ballet I, Lyrical Jazz), Dawna Campbell (Ballet II, Tap) and Stefan Espinosa (Advanced Acting, Advanced Musical Theatre).
  • Still offering the BEST PRICES! You won't find better classes for better prices anywhere in Utah!
  • Still offering GREAT DISCOUNTS! 10% off your tuition for being enrolled in multiple classes, or for having more than one family member enrolled at a time.
  • Still dedicated to giving the youth of Cache Valley professional-grade performing arts training!
  • Still focused on the individual growth of each of our students!
  • Still motivated by our LOVE for the arts, and for the amazing Cache Valley community!

See you in September!

Stefan Espinosa
