Performing Arts Skills Development Initiative

ZOOM! Making It Happen

We’re excited to continue our partnership with the Ovation! Performing Arts Academy and ZOOM! Making It Happen. ZOOM! is a training program for student and emerging professional performers.  ZOOM! is a series of special events, workshops, conferences and shows which introduce participants to various aspects of the professional performing arts industry. 

ZOOM! participants attend the conference, learn the ins and outs of ‘showcasing’, and meet the ‘arts buyers’ who represent performance venues across the province.  Welcome the delegates from Ovation! This is a great, long-term partnership for both organizations that will serve to enhance the performing arts touring sector in our province! Learn more about ZOOM!

Bonnie Craig, Academy Director at Ovation! is “inviting emerging artists and students to join us at Ovation! for this intensive and exciting new program!  If you’re thinking about, or just beginning, a career in the arts, ZOOM! will help launch your journey!  There’s nothing else like it in York Region!”

ZOOM! Making it Happen is open to emerging artists 12 years and up including adults.  Ovation! students see a greatly reduced fee.  For pricing and enrolment, please contact Bonnie Craig at Ovation! Performing Arts, toll-free 1-877-229-2787, or bonnie@ovationarts.ca.
