PROFESSIONAL ARTIST DEVELOPMENT
These are the most advanced arts programs available on the Encore campus. These programs may have some opportunities outside of the core program that have fees applied to them dependent on activities, but are the best kept secret and the best artist development value in Southern California. Encore is offering two Artist Development programs in the 20/21 school year - PROFESSIONAL PERFORMANCE ARTIST PROGRAM and PROFESSIONAL FILM MAKERS PROGRAM.
PROFESSIONAL PERFORMANCE ARTIST PROGRAM
The professional performance artist program is an artist development program for "triple threat performers." This is a highly selective group that drives in through all over Southern California to take part in this unique development program. It is a small program (up to 50 artists selected each year grades 9 - 12) where young artists are put through intensive arts training and given countless performance opportunities over the course of the school year. The purpose of this program is to develop a triple threat performer, identify what brand they are, and how to promote themselves into a professional career. It is a complete four year program that has been in operation since 2003 (even before Encore was a school). Students that are a part of this program are enrolled in Encore's Hybrid academic program. Their arts training and development is combined with Encore's pre college, A-G, accredited academic programs.
