Juries and Showcases

Juries are formal reviews by a panel of Arts faculty, which consist of a performance by the student, discussion of the student’s progress and strategies to help the student continue to grow. Juries are then followed by performance showcases in the Performance Hall of the Valor Center, with the mid-year Showcase held in January and the-end-of-year Showcase held in early May. These are fantastic opportunities for students to perform, shine and share their growth as artists!
