Overview of the year:

We have ongoing classes from September-May, in which student participate on a month-by-month basis.

The Conservatory Program, also runs September - May, and is a 9 month commitment.

Workshops, Master Classes, and Dance Intensives are offered throughout the year.  Please check here for current programs.

Camps are offered June - August. 

Private students are seen year-round.

Students enroll for classes on a monthly basis. Activities within the class curriculum change from month to month, and classes are specially designed so that students may take the same class for many months in a row. Classes meet 4 days per month and are $80 per month, with the following exception - If there is a month in which the class meets only three weeks, due to a holiday (such as in December), the monthly fee is prorated to $60. 

A minimum number of students are required for each class. There are no make-ups or discounts for missed classes.

Conservatory Program:

Please go directly to our Conservatory page for more details.

Students may enroll in one or multiple camps. We have summer camps for students ranging in age from 7-17. Payment in full is due in order to reserve a student’s place in a camp. A minimum number of students are required for each camp.  Camps for the summer are announced after the New Year.

Private Students:
Private lessons are available in VOICE, ACTING, AUDITION PREPARATION, COLLEGE ADMISSION PREP, SONGWRITING, and PLAY WRTING.  Most students schedule lessons for each week of the month.  They pay for their month of 4 or more lessons at the beginning of each month, in order to secure their time slots.  Some students schedule their lessons a la carte.  All a la carte students will be seen time permitting.  Payments can either be made by credit card, check (payable to: Theatre Arts School of San Diego, LLC), or cash.  All students must pay for the lessons for the month (whether it is 2 lessons, 4 lessons, or more) by the first lesson of each month.

If a student must cancel a lesson, they must do so at least 24 prior to lesson, in order to not be charged for the lesson. If a student misses a lesson, rescheduling may be accommodated at the discretion of the instructor.

To schedule lessons, please email:  Gayle@TheatreArtsSD.org
