This is an opportunity for students looking to pursue future careers in the arts to check out the school, where 98 percent of graduates move on to higher education, conservatories or to work directly in their chosen field.
During the LIHSA open house you can sample some of the professional-level classes that are taught by recognized artists and experienced master teachers. Sketch from a live model, sit in on a jazz jam or take a dance class.
Join the theatre ‘techies’ in creating special effects, participate in an improv class, join in a film shoot on location, watch a student performance, take an art class and then be dazzled by the artwork on display in the student art gallery.
“The LIHSA family looks forward to meeting you at the open house, come to hear about our outstanding half and full-day high school programs and the Summer Arts Academy for students entering grades 6-12,” says interim LIHSA Principal Dr. Frank Banta.
Explore the school’s theatre, art and dance studios, “high tech” Digital Music and Media Production Lab and rehearsal rooms. Tour the entire state-of-the-art facility and talk with staff, professional artists, alumni and parents of students.
LIHSA students receive professional-level training in art, dance, theatre, technical theatre, instrumental or vocal music, film, playwriting or Digital Media Production each day as a supplement to their regular courses of study.
The school’s alumni have landed starring roles on Broadway and in national touring companies. They also can be found working as technicians for Cirque de Soleil and at Lincoln Center. Last year’s 68 graduates earned more than $5.5 million in scholarships and grants to continue their education at some of the nation’s most highly esteemed colleges and conservatories.
