Welcome to our Performing Arts Academy page. We're still in the planning stages for our fall class options.

Update: Sept. 3 - Based on feedback from the survey, we're planning to offer after school classes as well as a Saturday morning program this fall. First week of classes is tentatively scheduled to be Oct. 5-10.

If you are interested in enrolling this fall, please fill our our survey.

Algonquin Fall Class Policies & Procedures include:

  • A signed waiver is required to participate. A link to retrieve the Policies and Procedures document and waiver form is in the order confirmation email.
  • Each class will have 6 to 12 students.
  • Everyone inside the theatre - students, staff and parents - is required to wear a mask. Masks are also required during arrival and dismissal.
  • Each student will be assigned a dedicated playing area and will otherwise be required to keep their distance.
  • All students must bring their own water bottle(s), marked with their name. Students may also bring a small pre-packaged snack to eat during break.
  • Parents are requested to screen students for temperature and symptoms prior to each class day. If there is any temperature higher than normal, or any symptoms related to COVID-19 or other illness, the student should stay home. A pro-rated refund will be available for classes missed due to illness.
  • All on-site doors will be propped open, limiting touch surfaces.
  • Algonquin will consistently clean the facility as recommended by public health guidelines.
  • For the final presentation, each student will be able to invite one parent/guest who can attend to record video of the performance (mask required) from the auditorium (parents will be assigned socially distanced seating).
  • All programs are subject to switch to an online model temporarily or permanently if mandated by state policies, there is exposure of a student to COVID-19, or the local school districts (Manasquan, Wall, Brielle, Pt. Pleasant, Brick) shift to all virtual learning due to local spread.
  • All policies are subject to change.
