ABOUT BLUEPRINT

At Blueprint, you’ll receive technique training from dedicated professionals in the three major performance disciplines: acting, dancing, and singing — plus the art of the college audition — all approached from within a framework of artistic rigor.

Our core group of faculty for all programming is made up of educators and professionals in the Broadway, television, and film industry. Working hard in this environment of unconditional support enables you to create the blueprint to become the artist that only you can be.


WHAT IS A DAY LIKE AT BLUEPRINT?

Blueprint takes place seven days a week from 9am to 9:30pm with an occasional break in schedule as needed. All classes are kept small to ensure individual attention.

In addition to the daily schedule and college audition curriculum below, Blueprint also includes:

INDUSTRY PROFESSIONAL Q&As

Faculty members host weekly Q&A sessions with other artists, which are announced on the day of the session. Past sessions have included exclusive conversations with:
- Original Mean Girls Broadway cast member Erika Henningsen (Cady) and Tony Winner Adrienne Warren (Tina - The Tina Turner Musical)
- Hamilton Director Tommy Kail and Texas State Acting Department Chair Neil Patrick Stewart
- Tony Winner Celia Keenan-Bolger (To Kill a Mockingbird) and Tony Nominee Elizabeth Stanley (Jagged Little Pill)

INDIVIDUAL LESSONS

Each student receives one 30-minute individual lesson of their choice in acting, dance, or voice as well as one 30-minute individual college audition coaching

COLLEGE PROGRAM

During Blueprint, representatives from numerous colleges and universities with prestigious performing arts programs join us to speak to interested students. These optional sessions can sometimes include classwork in addition to information about the school. They are a great way to get to know what a school has to offer and their educational style.

In addition, we also hold general information sessions on the college audition process for both students and their parents.

BLUENIFIEDS

Most of our students are familiar with the Unified college auditions held each year in various cities across the U.S. At Blueprint, we help students prepare for the overwhelming blitz of college auditions by holding our own practice version of these, which we call “Bluenifieds.” On a typical Bluenifieds day, which happens at least twice during Blueprint, a student first participates in a dance call, then must zig and zag their way through seven or more mock college auditions, each audition room challenging them in a unique way. Our former students tell us that this process was vital to their success at their actual auditions.


 

COMMUNITY AGREEMENT

The Performing Arts Project has a Community Agreement in place, created by faculty member Alejandro Rodriguez, for all administration, faculty, interns, staff, and students. This agreement establishes best practices for the prevention/repairing of any potential harm. The contents are discussed and updated at the beginning of programming to fit the specific needs and input of each company of students. Our 2021 Blueprint Community Agreement can be viewed below.
