Happy Friyay! Now that our virtual summer programs are over I wanted to share this video created by students of our 10-Day Intensive. This wasn't an assignment or anything the students were asked to do... they just got together after hours and did the whole project on their own! This summer was challenging for everyone... but all the faculty at OCU and the students who participated in our program made it a summer I will never forget. Special thanks to all the students featured and especially to Mary Kate Lee! 💖

So many thanks to these awesome OCU alumni that gathered tonight to talk to our students about being in a touring company and being an understudy, swing, or dance captain. Important but not often studied aspects of being a performer. Thanks Brian Cowing, Nicole Ferguson, Jane Bunting, and Elise Melendez! 💖

Lots of fun last night - and lots of LOVE shared - when our Summer 2020 virtual participants got to hear from the brilliant Kristin Chenoweth! To echo Dean Mark Parker, "Thank you Kristin for being willing to reach back to teach and support the next generation of performers!"

In our Summer Music Programs we have been discussing tough issues such as anxiety, body image, and confidence as it pertains to “type”.

When I heard Billy Porter reading this quote on his page I knew I had to share it!

The discussion shouldn’t be about “type”, it should be about TRUTH! Be your authentic self - and allow others to do the same - and claim your space!

10-Day says thanks

Last Friday we finished the first half of our "Virtual" Summer Music Program. This was our 19th summer (!) and, although 2020 threw us quite a curve-ball, I am so happy we were able to still have a program that provided value to our students.

I received this video as a "Thank You" from some of the participants... and they filled our hearts with joy!

Should a Student Add a Cancelled Internship to Their Resume?

If you were offered a role that was cancelled due to Covid19, you should still add that to your resume! This article agrees with my opinion that the accomplishment of "landing the role" is just as important as performing it! I thought this was a nice way to state it... just substitute Internship offer with "role"

XYZ Company - Internship offer accepted. Rescinded due to COVID-19 - Summer 2020

How important is it for a potential employer to know that a student was offered an internship even though the position was rescinded due to COVID-19?

Can the kids have a Kurig in the dorms?
Will the vocal arts performance after week 2 be streamed?
I have a couple of questions about packing list. 1:Are jazz pants equivalent to yoga pants or are they a more specific style 2: The camisole on the list, is it just a regular undergarment cami? Or is it more of a dance Leo? &3: just needing clarification - the handbook says no short shorts, but I wasn't sure if we are talking about dance shorts or street clothes, & what is a good measure of judgment for length. Thanks so much🙂
