If your child is a fourth or fifth grader and is interested in the performing arts, the Pré-Maîtrise Populaire de l'Opéra Comique could for her/him. Every Wednesday afternoon your child will be taught singing, dance and drama as well as Dalcroze musical training.
If your child enters junior high school or is already in junior high school and wishes to follow a twofold course in order to develop her/his artistic talent, the first cycle of the Maîtrise Populaire could be an opportunity for her/him. Spread over two or three half days during school time, this teaching includes choral singing, musical training, vocal technique, piano, dance, and tap dance plus a "tutti", which is a choral singing class that incorporates the whole education cycle.
From the beginning of the 2017 school year onward, a partnership with a Paris high school (lycée) will allow us to welcome you for an artistic twofold course. The second cycle of the Maîtrise Populaire offers comprehensive artistic education including singing, dance and drama spread over four half days.
This course will take place throughout the year in various concerts and a production at the Opéra Comique at the end of the year.
