CAST is an innovative private performing arts school that utilizes the Florida Virtual School for academics with a teacher on site to assist all students. In addition to the required academics for 4th – 12th grade, CAST offers an extensive variety of instruction in dance and musical theatre with master teachers from a wide range of backgrounds in the arts.
At CAST, our goal is to provide our students with the highest level of education in the arts, should they consider a career in this field. This also includes a solid foundation of the entertainment business, not necessarily covered by other performing arts schools. Our unique program will allow our students to learn a variety of performing arts while creating a performance project/ thesis project. Our school is geared towards middle and high school artists. All academic work is done virtually on our CAST campus with a professional’s assistance, when needed. Student’s progress will be monitored to make sure they keep the expected 3.5 grade point average.
The CAST campus is open from 7:30am-8:30pm. Most students attend our school from 7:30am-3:00pm and are welcomed, and take extra classes with Dancer’s Gallery on campus throughout the evening. Some CAST classes are group classes, while most are private classes and based on the needs of each student. At times, classes, events, field trips, performances, and jobs may be scheduled during the evening or weekend, if necessary.
CAST begins August 19, 2020. Private auditions available.
