Ovation is moving to a new studio!!!

Ovation Plans to Open in a New Studio June 1!

Dear Ovation Students & Parents,

Governor DeSantis has officially opened gyms as of next Monday, May 18th, so we will be opening up for classes and camps as of June 1 in the studio as well as continuing our online format for those choosing to stay at home! Please continue reading carefully and if you have any questions please feel free to contact us!


The new normal has certainly been challenging for many small businesses including Ovation, but with your support we have been able to keep our positive outlook . Therefore we have made the decision to move into a single larger studio (2100 sq. ft. space) starting June 1, 2020, with the hope of expanding in the summer of 2021 if all goes well with our startup. Being flexible is key at the moment.

Yes, we have been teaching virtual classes for 9 weeks now and we are still going strong thank goodness! We are happily teaching to very full, enthusiastic virtual classrooms and love seeing all of our student's happy faces on a daily basis!

We would like to thank everyone for their amazing support during this unprecedented time in all of our lives. We have been able to continue our very important work with all of your help. We feel blessed!

We hope that all of our students will follow us to our new location and continue to be a part of our Ovation community! Our new location has a lovely courtyard, a NY deli  a few feet from our entrance, a pizza place, Outback, Applebees and Geckos!!! It is safely lit, clean and extremely family friendly! We are also hoping it will be closer to many of our families to drive to!

Our New Address starting June 1 is:

4602 E. St. Rd. 64 
Bradenton, FL 34208
(In the Braden River Plaza behind Mellie's New York Deli & Eatery)

Please contact us if you have any questions or needs that we can help with!

Our vey best wishes, 

Michelle and Matt McCord

Let It Be Video

On March 14th 2020, the students of Ovation School of Musical Theatre put on hold their in-studio dance, voice and acting classes. However, this did not stop these children from pursuing their dreams of becoming performing artists. A week later these kids had jumped right back into their training. Through self-study and by taking online classes with their dedicated teachers at Ovation these beautiful souls are “Still” Preparing!

* Camps - We have cancelled all tots camps but will continue with the normal camps  in studio with virtual access for students who do not want to come live to camp. Maximum camp size in studios is 15 students, thus giving each student 100 sq. ft of their own space. If need be the camps will be totally online if the situation changes.

Ovation- School of Musical Theatre's End of Year Showcases!

Unfortunately due to the closing of all theaters in the foreseeable future , Ovation has decided to cancel it's End of Year Showcases for 2020.

Those parents that have paid for performance fees and/ or costumes will be credited 100% towards the 2021 Showcases. 

Unfortunately no refunds are possible at this time since all costumes have been paid for and have arrived. The costume companies are not taking any returns at this time. These costumes will be used next year, we will store them and make any adjustments in size that may be needed. They are beautiful

For those combo dance parents who already paid for tickets, they will receive a credit towards classes or camps moving forward.

We know that this is not an ideal or satisfactory situation for anyone, so we truly appreciate your understanding and support in this matter.
