Gender diversity scholarships:

Boys are often underrepresented in programs teaching drama, dance, and song. We encourage you to come and give these historical arts a try! SHAK programs tend to draw together creative, strong-minded, curious young individuals who enjoy discovering a sense of community together. Boys and gender-nonconforming kids attending a theater, dance, or singing program for the first time are invited to take 15% off your tuition level.


Need-based financial aid:

We are passionate about sharing these little-known art forms with everyone who'd like to get to know them! First-time applicants inquire here; returning students contact us.

Know before you enroll:

  • Newcomers to SHAK: No audition is required. Since this project is focused on group singing, please provide a reference contact (usually a music teacher) who can speak to the participant's basic pitch-matching ability (for drama cast) or vocal training (for chamber chorus).
  • Returning participants: If the student has sung in just one project with SHAK, or has worked with SHAK in non-singing projects, please contact Shula before enrolling. Those who have sung with SHAK more than once may enroll directly. 

 

We will confirm your submission of this form within three business days of receipt. If you don't hear back in that time, please contact Shula
