DMR Adventures Academy is the home of DMR Adventures and a center for our creative community.
DMR Adventures Academy & Studios will function as a wonderful resource for any artist searching for a home or a place to develop new work. Our new academy space features 3 working studios as well as a waiting area, kitchenette, and office/library. In addition to this studio space, we are forming Belmont Arts Collaborative and building out a black box theater next door, in the old Cville Market/Kathy’s Produce location. This theater will seat between 50-99 and will have a green room/dressing room, 2 bathrooms, and a kitchenette. We look forward to partnering with area arts organizations and teaching artists in the two new spaces!
DMR Studio is located at 221 Carlton Road, Suite 4, in the same shopping plaza (Kathy’s Shopping Center) as Belmont Pizza and the soon-to-open Found Market Company.
The focus of DMR Adventures (Dreams Made Real) is the development of artists through education and performance opportunities in acting, dance and voice. Classes and programs are led by both local and visiting guest artists who are experts their fields. It is common to see one of our regular visiting Broadway artists working and laughing with students, or to hear our young students discussing professional jobs and audition experiences. Even though we support and encourage professional opportunities and growth, DMR Adventures is also a wonderful place for beginners or those wanting to dust off their old skills and passions. Our Youth Leadership Program (YLP) has been at the core of our programming for the last eight years, providing long-lasting relationships and impactful training — many YLP members have established their own artistic programming, have produced educational opportunities within their respective communities, and most importantly, have gone on to serve as mentors.
