The Conservatory at Lausanne
Our Mission: To build creative, confident and expressive performers with a life-long appreciation for the Performing Arts.
The Lausanne Way is at the core of our Conservatory curriculum, focusing on student-centered, process-oriented arts education. Students are encouraged to take risks as they build confidence in their performance skills, confidence that extends into their academic lives and beyond. We provide these opportunities through meaningful classes and quality private lessons.
For the 2013-2014 academic year The Conservatory will continue to offer private lessons for all ages as well as ensembles and classes in dance, music and acting. Please review all studio policies when enrolling for lessons or classes. Some classes and ensembles involve placement auditions and younger students may need a readiness assessment before being enrolled in private lessons. Descriptions of all offerings are by division:
Lower School Conservatory
Middle & Upper School Conservatory
PRIORITY REGISTRATION FOR 2013-2014 CLOSES JULY 15
