PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION PRIOR TO REGISTERING FOR ANY COURSE

Your safety is our priority. Since the pandemic began, we’ve collaborated with medical professionals, invested in building upgrades, and put new procedures in place to protect our guests, staff, volunteers, and faculty. Just a few things you might want to know: All guests 2+ must wear a mask indoors. Faculty and staff are required to be vaccinated. Students 5+ must show proof of vaccination prior to the first in-person session. Arts Education programs are at reduced capacity to allow for safe distancing. And you can feel safe knowing our HVAC system meets industry standards for virus ionization and filtration and our cleaning processes follow all CDC recommendations. Further details on program protocols are HERE and specific details on procedures are shared upon completed registration and during program orientations.

Connect, create, and discover unlimited possibilities! Reimagine your world through the performing arts. In this four-week, at-home virtual arts training experience, young artists will be guided by NJPAC’s accomplished faculty through specialty sessions of their choice. Options including Acting/Devised Theater, Dance, Hip Hop Arts & Culture, and Musical Theater.
