The-PAC @ Elefante Music

The Performing Arts Conservatory (The-PAC) is thrilled to announce the launch of their flagship school in New Providence, New Jersey, at Elefante Music on Springfield Avenue, across from McDonalds.

The-PAC is a new school for students of all ages who wish to explore their inner artist. The-PAC will offer beginner classes in acting, improv, film making, directing, cabaret performance, dancing and voice over as well as Master Classes, Broadway Seminars and Advanced Classes (by audition only).

All of The instructors at The-PAC are individuals who have successfully earned a living doing what they teach. The resumes of our faculty include film, television, regional Theater and Broadway. Matthew Arkin (Drama Desk Award nominee for his performance in The Broadway production of the Pulitzer Prize winning play Dinner with Friends) will be teaching a weekly Advanced Scene Study Class. Our Advanced Musical Theater Class will be jointly taught by David Cantor (Che in Evita on Broadway and in The National Tour) and Joe Elefante (Associate Music Director for Jersey Boys National Tour).

In addition to weekly classes, The-PAC will offer seminars on topics that range from "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Getting Your Child Into The Business But Did Not Know Who To Ask" to "An Evening with Joe and Jim" an interview series featuring an individual who is currently working as a actor, director or film maker. The Broadway Seminar Series is a limited availability event.

In addition to The Interview session, there will be an opportunity to see The Broadway show featuring our guests are in along with a "Talk Back" or backstage tour. Keep watching for more information.

The-PAC wants to support music and the arts in our schools. Five dollars of every registration fee will be given back to our local schools in the form on a Mini-Grant for the Arts. So sure to tell us the name of your school when you register!
