In the News: HomeGrown Arts Alliance

homegrown arts alliance

Over these past few months, we’ve all slowed down a bit. After all, staying home allows us to keep ourselves—and others—safe as we seek to flatten the curve. Still, we all have something we miss—like performing. Whether you like to act, dance, or sing, you can learn more about the skills you love with online classes from the HomeGrown Arts Alliance.

What is the HomeGrown Arts Alliance?

The HomeGrown Arts Alliance connects Macon, GA to Broadway. Some of our town’s residents have made it big in the Big Apple or on television—and they want to help other aspiring performers do the same. They’ve created the HomeGrown Arts Alliance to share their wisdom through fun online classes.

Sponsored by the Macon Arts Alliance, this program was founded by Sasha Hutchings. You may know her from Hamilton. She’s also performed in Broadway shows, like My Fair Lady and Oklahoma. She’s from our city, and along with several other Macon performers, she is helping to teach others through this incredible program.

What classes does the HomeGrown Arts Alliance offer?

Some of us are triple threats. Others love writing. And a few of us want to be on the big screen. You can register for a wide variety of classes from the HomeGrown Arts Alliance. They include subjects such as:

  • Audition Prep;
  • Writing;
  • Choreography;
  • On-Camera;
  • Theatre;
  • Dance;
  • Voice;
  • Children’s Programing;
  • Various Broadway Master Classes;
  • And more.

These fantastic four-week summer classes are almost over, after running from July 6 to 31. You can still sign up for master classes, single classes, and future courses online here. If you want to support this local institution, you can also sign up to be a sponsor here.


Someday, even more performers from Macon, GA can make a name for themselves. Right now, dancers, singers, and actors alike can get the foundation they need, thanks to online classes from the HomeGrown Arts Alliance. Who knows—this could even be the start of your big break!
