Advanced Training 

The Conservatory

We are so thrilled to be able to bring an advanced training program to JPA for our older performers ages 15 years - 19 years. Many of our performers age out of our youth programs at 16 and we wanted to be able to offer a continuing education program that would be instrumental in their success if pursuing a career in the performing Arts world or just to keep building the confidence and knowledge for use in everyday life.
