Algonquin will be launching a new program called performing arts in the spring of 2014 which will be added to a list of programs offered in the School of Media and Design.

The new program will earn students an Ontario College Certificate within one year which is equal to 23 condensed weeks of study.

It will allow for budding artists to hone their skills in vocal work, movement, spoken word, comedy, theatre and music.

They could be puppeteers, they could be absolutely anything,” stated Cath Kenney, program coordinator and developer in regards to future students.

Students who enroll will be able to “explore their art form and work together toward creating live and digital performances,” Kenney added.

Put together by an advisory committee, Kenney has been thrilled with the support from the not only the college but the members of the Media and Design school.

Students will be given an introduction to everything from auditioning to on-camera work. The goal is to offer a wide variety of content to attract all different performers. The variety is deigned to push those who consider themselves drummers to try dance, or vice versa. They could perform on a stage, or in a hallway. This will help with confidence building that will translate later to the job search process. The communication class helps with the business side of things which will provide and idea of where to go next.

With the addition of this program the school of media gains more diversity with its currently offered degree and diploma programs.

The program provides opportunities to slam poets or stand-up comedians a place to learn the skills they require. Kenney hopes that every student will be celebrated and helped along the way to a goal of achieving their first gigs.
