IGNITE your future in the arts, and have a BLAST while doing it
LAUNCH is the newest, premiere competition and convention that dares studio directors, teachers, and performers of all ages to launch into a future in the arts.
Our name signifies what we hope to provide for every performer: a successful launch into a future in the performing arts through encouragement of well-rounded skills, technique, knowledge, and confidence of not just the craft of performance, but also the real-world realities of working successfully in the entertainment industry today.
We believe in healthy competition, but really, the only one you’re competing with is yourself. Competitions today provide an amazing opportunity to regularly perform in an exciting environment, push each other to be better than before, and grow through expert feedback and the sharing of experiences and technique.
THE REAL WORLD
It’s not about how many trophies you’ve won…
College Programs? Agents? Auditions? Booking jobs? Should I take voice lessons? How do I get in a broadway show? How do I help my students get into a college program or start a career in NYC or LA? There are so many questions for performers wondering if they can make performing their career. Our uniquely qualified team has created launch to finally answer these questions for studio directors, teachers, and students who are ready.
How are we different?
Emphasis on well-rounded performer techniques with singing and acting for dancers classes.
Overhauled scoring system and judging with an emphasis on storytelling, but special caption awards in each category for technique, costume, choreography, story-telling, and general effect.
