A reader from Bozeman, Montana/Jakarta, Indonesia sent in a unique story tip to share. The cellist from the famous Ahn Trio, three Julliard-trained sisters (Lucia on the piano, Angella on the violin, and Maria on the cello) who have “earned a distinguished reputation for embracing 21st century classical music,” is offering an opportunity to train with her for FREE! How does a musician get to study with Maria from Ahn Trio? If you are between the ages of 12-18, you will need to audition during the Harlem School of the Arts Prep Auditions, which will take place May 5-9. The individual(s) chosen will be able to study-tuition free with Maria for a whole year!

The Harlem School of the Arts Prep Auditions is an annual event, which covers other instruments, theater, dance and visual arts! Check out HSA website to learn more. And learn more about Ahn Trio by going here.

American Ballet Theatre and Harlem School of the Arts join forces to form training partnership

American Ballet Theatre and Harlem School of the Arts‘ Dance Department have formed a unique training partnership, which will incorporate ABT’s National Training Curriculum in HSA’s dance curriculum.

Beginning Fall 2013, ABT will train HSA’s dance faculty in the principles of its National Training Curriculum. The establishment of an ABT Certification for HSA will provide a comprehensive training program in ballet for all HSA dance faculty, including student exams to evaluate teachers and students, refresher courses and mentorship. The partnership will be introduced to the Harlem School of the Arts community of dance families and students on Tuesday, May 21 at HSA’s Theater, 649 Saint Nicholas Avenue with a lecture- demonstration presented by the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School at American Ballet Theatre.

As a part of the training partnership between American Ballet Theatre and the Harlem School of the Arts, JKO Principal Franco De Vita will conduct master classes at HSA throughout the year and serve as advisors to HSA faculty in order to effectively integrate the new ballet curriculum into HSA’s diverse offering of dance technique including jazz, tap, modern, African and hip hop.
