Junior APA FAQ's

Who do I turn my application in to?

The front office of Dwyer.

 

Can I take Dance 1 without taking any other APA classes?

Yes. You will need to complete the APA application and have it approved by the Performing Arts Director and Dwyer Admin.

 

I am in the 6th grade and I've taken acting or done theatre in the past. Can I skip to Intermediate or Advanced Drama?

No. All sixth-graders must take 1 semester of Beginning Drama before they may be placed in an acting class of another level.

 

I am in the 6th or 7th grade and want to take Drama all year. Is that possible?

Yes. What we can do is put you in Mrs. Chappell Brock's beginning drama class for the first quarter and place you in the Intermediate drama class for the second quarter at the end of the year. On the elective form, please choose "Theatre" twice. 

 

I am in the 6th grade and I've taken a minimum of 3 hours of dance a week for over 2 years. Can I skip to Dance 2?

Yes. Please e-mail Mrs. Chappell Brock a ebrock@hbcsd.us to arrange for a mini-audition.

 

When do I do the actual physical auditions?

The dance audition is on either Thursday, June 8th from 1:20 - 3pm or Tuesday, June 13th from 2:45-4pm in Mr. Mationg's room. (You get to pick the date.) Expect to sing and dance a short combo from Disney's "High School Musical." Also - Arrange with Mrs. Chappell Brock for a time to perform your monologue and short song.

 

What advice do you have for someone who knows they want to be a part of the Musical Theatre Department of APA at HBHS?

If you are planning on going to APA at HBHS and doing musical theatre there, we strongly suggest that you either take Mrs. Chappell Brock's dance class instead of PE at Dwyer, or that you enroll in either jazz, hip-hop or ballet after school. Also, we encourage you to take choir for at least a year or enroll in private vocal lessons after school.

 

Who Should I e-mail with questions about musical theatre, dance, drama or technical theatre?

E-mail Mrs. Chappell Brock at ebrock@hbcsd.us
