Shine on Stage!

Tuesday Night Teen Class Lives On! 

Tailored to meet the interests and skill level of teens registered each session.  We'll tackle projects ranging from One Acts, Sketch Comedy, Melodramas, and More! 

​​"Ladies and Gents.. this is the moment you've been waiting for..."

The Fall 2019 Classes are inspired by the magic and wonder of The Circus!  As many of you know, The Greatest Showman is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and the visionary who rose from nothing to create the over-the-top BIG-TOP experience. This semester, The Academy joins forces with Arts Reach to create the GREATEST SHOW in Northern Colorado!

Our classes will utilize the music from “The Greatest Showman," from the musical "Barnum," from Cirque Du Soleli and from other Circus-themed pop music. This will be a spectacle of dance, acting  acrobatic movement, and dazzling vocals – all culminating in our Fall Recitals this November. 

Ring Masters are The Academy founder, Jalyn Webb and Arts Reach founder, Jill Van Orden. They have pulled together a cast of Master Teachers that won’t disappoint: Emily Erkman, Abbie Hanawalt and Katie Burke. We invite you into a world of wonder, imagination and excitement… and we can't wait to get started! 

Fall Classes will be held at Studio West Dance Center: 216 W. Horsetooth Road, Suite B, Fort Collins, CO 80525

Classes Start: Monday, September 9th
10-week Classes End: Friday, November 15

I'm so excited about these classes!  Please check out our schedule of fabulous classes and come Act, Sing, & Dance with us! ​


I will be getting back to my foundation as a dance instructor / choreographer in this series of classes.  An excellent class for performers who are more confident in their acting and singing than they are their dancing.  You'll learn dance basics needed to bring confidence to all aspects of your performance.
