Welcome to J Arts & Ideas Academy! We’re a youth musical theatre training program that gives students the opportunity to discover and develop their talents as performers. Through our programming, each child will work with theatre professionals in three disciplines: acting, singing and dancing.

Each session will have young performers preparing a fully produced show, including costumes, lights, sets and sound. This gives our students the chance to shine on the stage for their friends and family. Click here to see some past productions.
