Audition Programs at TAPCo
Students develop their creativity, strength, alignment and teaching skills as they learn Modern Dance, Ballet, Composition Technology and Principles of Dance. Pedagogy is blended to help students develop their own unique voice as creators with competitive skills to succeed in the real world.
Students learn acting technique, scene study, voice and diction, movement, singing, theatre history, audition preparation, digital (photo & video) resume building, script analysis, directing, lighting design, and stagecraft in addition to exploring performance and acting techniques for full stage classical, modern, and musical theatre productions as well as smaller studio settings.
VISUAL ARTS & TECHNOLOGY
Non Moving Image
Students develop their artistic skills as they progress through classroom assignments such as still life drawing, perspective drawing, portraiture, figure drawing, and abstract compositions using a variety of drawing, painting, and digital design media. TAPCo students have the opportunity to apply to the Fred Dolan Art Academy, a Saturday professional artist-led program that helps students develop their portfolios and secure scholarships for college.
Students develop self-confidence in their creative, critical thinking and expressive process of the student as they build valuable artistic, literacy and technical skills in photography and video production with the added benefit of team building skills for ongoing meaning and application in college and the real world work place. Students participate in the planning, production and presentation of multi-media projects for actual clients, which include individuals and organizations in and out of school.

We employ 43 talented and dedicated educators many of whom are dual-certified in the Arts. This school year we are working with the Lehman College of Education as one of a select group of sites to help develop and mentor new teachers in conjunction with our highly qualified teaching staff.
We have a theater scene shop, dedicated dance studio, a black box theater & a regular full-sized auditorium, two vocal chorus rooms, and a radio station. Pay us a visit and you'll learn how our community lives up to the highest behavioral and academic standards.
