Ovation Centre of Performing Arts responds to a definite need in the profession for performers to be technically well-equipped and versatile, as well as creatively inspired and gives close personal attention to each student’s development and goals.

Standards of Achievement and Evaluation

Each student committed to our Performing Arts program engages in a rigorous course of study with required classes in voice, movement and acting.

The curriculum also includes more specific skills, including mask work, stage combat, dialects, comedy techniques, singing, musical theatre and many more! The schedule for each class includes class work relevant to students group and individual progress.

A full schedule of workshops and major productions provides vital performing experience. In Production term students maybe required for extra rehearsals and dedication to the project is essential.

Every Year students are also invited at the recommendation of Ovation to participate and Audition for our Advanced Programs for professional skill based classes, and opportunities for our high achieving students. All Students also receive progress reports and we also run parent teacher nights so parents can track the progress of their child.

Every student will also receive certificates for each successfully completed component. Students are evaluated each term by our faculty and informed of their progress. Students are encouraged to discuss with any of their lecturers, at any time, problems and progress in their work.

Admission to our Advanced Programs

Students are admitted to this program via audition and interview. Audition applicants should prepare a monologue no longer than 3 minutes in length.

It is recommended that students avoid character voices and foreign dialects, but focus on using their own voice and dialect. Dress appropriately for a rehearsal situation. Costumes and props are unnecessary.

Continuance in the Program

Students are invited to continue in the program by Ovation Centre of Performing Arts as long as they demonstrate growth towards artistic excellence.

Ovation reserves the right to dismiss from the program without probation or an official letter of warning any student whose social or professional behaviour prevents the schools classes and rehearsal from proceeding in a creative and productive fashion, and interferes with the training of other students.

Ovation has developed a program which is designed to provide full, rounded and highly professional education in performance training.
