VANGUARD INSTITUTE FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS
Our education and performance programs teach theater skills to students grades K-12, while focusing, age appropriately, on racial literacy and social justice. The health and safety of our students, staff, and families is our top priority.
EDUCATIONAL PERFORMANCE PROGRAMS
DREAM VTC and VTC Kids are educational programs that mimic a professional theatrical rehearsal process culminating in public performances, and also providing opportunities for participants to bring live theater to populations with limited access, thus teaching the gift of reciprocity.
SUMMER STOCK is an intensive 16 day summer-stock sleep-away program for the serious musical theater performer between the ages of 12–18; The staff is led by professional actors and directors, and our campers leave each year saying that it was the best two weeks of their life! They learn, they grow, and they have an amazing time doing it.
