TUESDAY & FRIDAY CLASS OPTIONS
spend the afternoon at metropolitan dancing, singing and acting your heart out!
The Metropolitan School of the Arts Homeschool Program (MHP) offers professional and accessible Musical Theater, Jazz and Acting programming to home-educated students.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:
-High quality performing arts classes taught by professional educators
-Convenient daytime class hours
-Low pressure performing opportunities throughout the year
MHP Tuesday offers 3 hours of professional and accessible Musical Theater classes for home-educated children ages 7-18. Based on the founding principles of Metropolitan, our curriculum of dance, music, and drama trains students in performing arts technique each Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Students will dive into a well-rounded curriculum that includes 3 one-hour classes in dance, music, and drama.
MHP Friday provides classes perfect for the home educated teen wanting to take their training up to the next level and students not wanting to enroll in the full MHP Tuesday Musical Theater program. Teen Acting is designed to build on the acting skills taught in the MHP Tuesday Senior Acting class. Enrollment in MHP Tuesday is highly recommended, but not required. Friday Intermediate Drama classes will cover the same material as the Tuesday MHP classes.
Metropolitan Homeschool Productions provides a professionally produced theater performance opportunity for all home educated families. Auditions are held in the fall; rehearsals run January through June, with culminating performances held in mid-June. Rehearsal blocks begin immediately following MHP Tuesday classes.
COVID REOPENING PLANS
We appreciate and respect that many of our families have varying opinions based on individual circumstances. Our priority was to create a plan that allowed both in-person and virtual options when possible to allow all families to continue participation in a way they felt most comfortable. We will continue to do everything we can to support our students, families, faculty, and staff needs, keep safety a priority, adapt to new ways of learning, provide quality arts education and other engaging opportunities through the various pandemic phases, and look to a better future. We will communicate modifications to this plan as we strive to improve our offerings and experiences and stay up-to-date with changing requirements and guidelines along the way.
Like many organizations, we have faced many challenges and tough decisions in response to an unexpected global health pandemic. This has not been easy for anyone, but we feel fortunate to have a loyal, supportive community #keepingthejoy of MSA alive. Although we are not back to 100% in-person training, we look forward to the time when it is safe to do so.
“Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.”
Metropolitan Homeschool Program:
- All rooms have been equipped with AV equipment to allow virtual and in-person participation simultaneously. Students will alternate between virtual and in-person classes
- We will continue to monitor class sizes and increase in-person class size when it is safe to do so.
- Students will have the option to remain 100% virtual.
Private Music Lessons: 100% virtual
- Students will have the option to use a music room (alone) for their lesson during their “in-person” weeks if between two classes. They will need a personal device to connect virtually with their teacher who will be teaching from home.
