Fun from The Richland Academy of the Arts; Scheduling and Registration Updates

April 6, 2020

Hello to Everyone from the Richland Academy of the Arts!

We know this is a difficult time for our community, but since we’ve always thought of our community as family, we wanted to reach out and check in with you. How is everything going? 

While you’re all following the Governor’s directive to stay at home, how about checking out some of our fun links:

Always wanted to learn Salsa Dancing?

Click here to try out the Cha Cha Cha:

Once you’ve got the technique down, you can find tons of great music on YouTube or Spotify and have your own party!


More interested in classical dance?

Try our Vivaldi Challenge here:

(We KNOW you can do it!)


Introducing #RecitalPhotoChallenge!! Here’s how to play:

1. Take the Vivaldi Challenge.

2. Snap a picture of yourself in one of the poses – serious, funny, whatever!

3. Post your photos side by side (our thanks to PicCollage).

4. Enjoy!

Music Together is the ultimate resource for family music making! 

So, sing a song, grab a drum (or a plastic bowl and wooden spoon!) and join us in celebrating Sing With Your Child Month this March with our weekly Music Together Class with Miss Megan. You can also sing along with her Facebook Live class Fridays at 10:00 am! Click here to watch last weeks class!

Remote Drama Activity: Family Fairy Tale 

(Thanks to Beat By Beat Press for the idea)

Give students a list of 6-10 fairy tales or children’s books. They must choose a book and read it with their family.

They must create a board of six tableau scenes (frozen pictures) that tell the whole story, using their family members.

They must “direct” their family members in these tableau scenes, take pictures of each one, and share them with us! We will post your stories for people to guess which book each board represents. 

Look for us on Facebook and Youtube for lots more fun!


Richland Academy Students, Families and Friends- Something to Look Forward To:

Students and staff, we know – boy, do we know! – how long and how hard our students had been working on their amazing projects in music, dance, theatre, visual arts and kenpo until the closure. 

As soon as we have permission, the Academy will reopen and finish spring classes . . . AND we will be holding all spring performances in our building! We’re not exactly sure what those performances will look like, but rest assured that we are brainstorming (from 6 feet apart! and on-line) about all sorts of possibilities.

We had originally set April 6th as the day registration would begin for summer classes, but we clearly need to suspend that until we have a better idea of what the summer will look like for all of us. Governor DeWine and Dr. Acton have been very clear about what Ohioans need to do to help flatten the curve, and we’re prioritizing your health and safety with every decision we make. We’re excited to get back to making art as soon we can, so we’ll keep you updated regularly.
