TAA is a year-long triple-threat program which trains students ages 6-18 in the areas of acting, singing, and dancing (trimester 1), which prepares them to perform in a competition against the other academy locations (trimester 3), which equips them to put together everything they've learned as cast members in a full musical production (trimester 3).
