Accademia Teatro alla Scala offers a host of courses for summer 2021 in all its Departments. There’s something for everyone!
FOR CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS
For the youngest there is the traditional Stage Arts Camp and the Beginning Dance Workshops. The former is geared for elementary and middle school students and is offered in five sessions between June 14 and September 3, 2021. Admissions close on May 24.
The Beginning Dance Workshops are for children in the second, third, fourth, or fifth grade of elementary school. The deadline for enrollment is May 21.
Admissions are also open for the Professional Dancer Workshops for aspiring dancers aged 11 to 22. Two sessions are offered: July 5–9 and July 12–16, 2021. Applications are accepted until June 6.
The Academy offers two courses for musicians: five-day master classes for orchestra musicians for each instrument between June 28 and July 16, with an application deadline of May 28; and the master class for opera coaches, two intensive weeks for those who want to refine their piano accompaniment technique, with admissions closing on June 10.
The Management Department is offering a Workshop in production management, which introduces participants to the organizational model of performing arts institutions. The workshop will take place in Milan from September 6th to the 16th (deadline for admissions: August 30).
There are a number of workshops for those preparing for the selection process for the stagecraft courses: there are two online workshops, one in audio technology and one in lighting design; a workshop in costume-making (deadline: June 27); an introductory workshop to stage photography, videography and new media (deadline: August 20); and a workshop in hair and makeup offered either as a weekend course (June 12-13, deadline for applications May 28) or a weekly course in July (admissions deadline June 28).
Please note that good performance in the audio technology, lighting design, and photography workshops allows students to enroll in the full-length course directly without passing through the selection process. A discount is offered for early enrollment in some workshops.
Last but not least, dancers ages 18 to 22 can take part in the summer dance workshops.
