From our education director:

Welcome! As we get ready for our fall semester, I am reminded of what an exciting time this has been for The Hanover Theatre Conservatory for the Performing Arts.  In our inaugural semester this past January, we were thrilled to welcome so many talented students into our new space.  The conservatory was buzzing with actors, dancers, musicians and designers of all ages and abilities.

True to our belief that education is a lifelong pursuit, we taught those as young as two months old and were inspired by our adult students who brought up to 72 years of wisdom and experience to the classroom.  In addition to our theatre, music and design offerings, we were eager to expand our dance offerings this past spring.  We also welcomed Ballet Arts Worcester and their disciplined training into our organization.  With our programs quickly growing, I am happy to announce the addition of two new studios currently in construction for the fall. 
With both 15 and 32-week class offerings, we feel that the 2017-2018 schedule has something for everyone.  As you look through the course catalog, you’ll see new levels for our existing classes as well as the addition of some new and exciting offerings like Mommy & Me Dance, Playmaking, Stage Combat, Lighting & Sound Design, African Dance, College Audition Prep Class and much more! 
We hope you’ll join us as we continue to ignite creativity and inspire confidence through the arts.
