Master Class Talent Development Seminars
Master Class Talent Development Seminars provide one-day intensives for artists led by arts and entertainment industry professionals. Master Class seminars continue the legacy of the Apollo as a place where artists and entertainers learned informally about the principles and ethics of show business. The seminar curriculum provides participants with guidance on the basic elements of their craft, personal presentation in the public arena, business and legal considerations, and marketing and publicity.
Our professional learning activities provide educators with a number of exciting strategies for engaging students in interdisciplinary study of the Arts, ELA, and Social Studies and a variety of resources to connect the rich history of the Apollo, Harlem, the arts, and entertainment to classroom subject areas.
