"We finally found a program that develops skill building in singing, dancing, and acting all together! I love the variety in the material for it broadens my daughter's experiences. And very importantly she has really improved her ability to record her performances which is going to help her tremendously as she applies to musical theater college programs. She has learned the technical parts as well as how to give an effective performance to a camera."

"For anyone needing some musical theatre in their lives... I took the first session of this, and it’s SO much fun! You’ll exercise those triple-threat muscles by learning a song & dance from a different musical every week. This is also a great resource for theatre teachers (or homeschooling parents) who need some extra content. The pace of instruction is perfect for teens, but I highly recommend this to students of all ages. You’ll feel like you’re in a show again!"
--Abby Carlson, Theatre Instructor
"From a classroom perspective, Jorieography integrates seamlessly into a musical theatre curriculum, functioning equally well as supplemental or primary content. The amount of customizable options when "choosing your own adventure" works very well for a mixed level, high school musical theatre course. The six week session can be tailored to the needs of your students to ensure that everyone is benefitting from a challenging, generative experience. Especially now, when so many schools are not able to gather in person, my students found Jorieography to be a particularly engaging example of how effective virtual and remote learning can be. This program acknowledges that it is not an in-person, synchronous experience and does not pretend to be. Jorieography embraces the advantages of the digital medium, and thus excels at helping students develop their self-tape, audition, and triple threat abilities. Jorie is one of the best teaching artists around. She understands how to facilitate information, direction, and feedback in such a way that is accessible and easily digestible for young people so that they can put it into immediate practice. I highly recommend Jorieography! "

"I got a lot better at recording myself and applying feedback. The routines covered a variety of styles and were super fun!"
--Kathy Syta, Student
"Jorieography is a unique learning experience that is a must for any musical theater performer. This course offers students the ability to learn a variety of musical theater material in their own home. Jorie Janeway is a seasoned performer and consummate professional who will challenge a student in a very supportive environment. Along with choreography and vocal training, Jorieography offers the student the chance to learn the all important skill of performing for the camera. It is a program that is exceptional at any time, but is extremely opportune as we work to create during this unprecedented time. We are very fortunate to have this program as part of the Encore learning experience."
