TIP Summer Academy in June offers 3 two week camps back to back, which
means your young performer can performer for the entire month of June and even into July!

In July, the Summer Academy moves to one singular show.  This more intensive rehearsal process allows for bigger dance numbers, bigger scenic elements, and an overall bigger production.  The July session is for performers from grades 5 to 12.

TIP Winter Academy is a program during school's Winter Break.  This  production focuses on the refinement of skills already developed within performers.  The Winter Academy is designed to focus on individual performance aspects.  This program is audition based and auditions take place in the fall.

TIP Winter Academy treats itself like any TIP Mainstage production.  Auditions, callbacks, casting and intensive rehearsals all create an environment of learning and excitement, which culminate in a fully realized Broadway style musical.  The Winter Academy is for performers in grades 6th through 12th.

TIP Winter Academy is designed to take performer's skills and refine, improve, and showcase them. We strive for growth, quality, fun and memories for all of our performers and participants.
