What a YEAR this has been! I usually use A LOT of the same information from year to year…BUT 2021 certainly will be an exception! With that…we have a MAJOR announcement to make!! TaVaci is UP and going! We are excited (and a teeeeeeny bit sad) My hubby and I have found it necessary to move from our home of 38 years! BUT…YAHOO! TaVaci LIVES! We are so thrilled to announce the new location of TaVaci School of Performing Arts! ……Drum roll please……
All classes will be held at…..(2nd drum roll, please…)
The Leavitt Center!!
1030 East Sublette
Pocatello, ID 83201
Everything will be MOSTLY the same as far as teachers-with one teeny exception! Heather—our veteran teacher (who has been with us since she was 3…yes…I’m not missing a number..I said THREE…will be on baby sabbatical for this semester. Since she is expecting on Dec. 2nd we thought we would give her a break! Congratulations, Heather!
NOW…we will have our lovely Miranda and her adorable sister Camyrn working together with the 3rd-6th students as per the usual days—MONDAYS! Both of these lovelys are alumni to TaVaci and certainly NOT strangers! I have loved this family and now we get TWO of them!! YAY for TaVaci!!
SO…everything is pretty much the same ONLY I am so excited for this new and WONDERFUL location! In fact, if truth be known, before we decided to move, I had to make sure that TaVaci would be in a “good spot” AND…they ARE!

Heather literally has been IN TaVaci for 30 PLUS years! Apparently, she can NOT get enough! J . She started singing with TaVaci at the age of 4 and hasn’t stopped to take a breath! Well, maybe TWO..

Heather is also a gifted choreographer and creates MUCH of the staging that our students display for our TaVaci concerts. We are thrilled that Heather is teaching TaVaci!- We’re going to miss Miss Heather during her “sabbatical” J but are so happy for her family! Thanks Heather!

The concert is an integral part of your vocal training. It is the most positive of all the music activities in improving self-esteem and confidence. There will be two concerts annually.(Christmas and Spring) All concerts and performances are free to the public.
The dress rehearsals held prior to the concert at the concert hall are MANDATORY. You will have advance notice of dates and times. The rehearsals are closed to the public AND parents! So SORRY!
Occasionally we are invited to perform at special events. Attendance is not mandatory, but strongly recommended. There are no additional charges for these performances.
All students are required to wear the selected costume. Used costumes will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis and only on the designated day(s). You will be notified of dates and times. Props are used for a number or two in concerts. There are additional fees for any props for all students.
If your child would like to bring a friend to class please notify your teacher, otherwise we would request that no visitors (parents included) attend class. The younger children in particular are easily distracted. If you have questions about your child's progress please notify your child's teacher.
