Pushing ahead.

It’s summer in Idyllwild, the summer camp kids are just arriving.  Those of us that work with the Academy are busy tidying up things for the fall.  We’re in the process of updating our curriculum guide a bit, and it’s called some things to my attention.  At this time of economic uncertainty many organizations(especially public schools) are pulling back, reducing program or offerings, letting quality suffer.  That’s not what’s happening here!  I was just doing some proofreading and was reminded that we’re increasing the intensity of our fashion design courses, adding computer animation, ramping up the collaboration between music and film, including our wonderful film scoring program.  More private lesson opportunity for voice lessons for dancers(or anybody else) if they wish them, helping to prepare them for today’s multifacted careers.  Acting for the camera is getting a fresh injection of energy, making it possible for our actors to leave here with a reel as they audition for colleges, conservatories, jobs.

It’s exciting to be here in the summer because of the different energy on campus, but it’s even more fun to think about possibilities for the fall, who our kids are going to be and what they’re going to create.
