Grant Fuller

Grant Fuller is excited to partner with Utah Festival Opera this year in fostering tap talent in Cache Valley. He started tap dancing as a three year old and has never stopped since. He used his talents on the BYU International Folk Dance team in both group numbers and as a featured soloist. He was also hired by BYU as a tap instructor for beginning, intermediate, and advanced classes. He discovered that he truly loves to be involved in the learning process and to help students grasp new concepts. He is currently earning his Masters degree in Information Systems from USU and is a father to an extremely adorable one year old ( who he swears is already catching on to good rhythm).


Idaho-raised soprano Jocelyn van Wyk is an actress, operatic stage director, private voice teacher and owner of Sego Studios. She completed her Masters of Music in Opera Performance in the spring of 2020, from Longy School of Music of Bard College. She has performed many operatic and music theater roles. Jocelyn specializes in character development and loves telling beloved stories in new meaningful ways, and most recently did so with our Jr Fall Production of James and the Giant Peach. Jocelyn is passionate about sharing the beauty of opera, and musical theatre with those who have never experienced it before.

She is thrilled to be teaching with the Conservatory!

UFCPA Covid Policies – Updated February, 2022

  • UFCPA will abide by all current local and federal public health policies, including masking requirements.
  • We ask any unvaccinated students to please wear face coverings (KN95 masks preferred) while participating in Conservatory classes indoors, though masks may be removed at the discretion of the instructors. Masks can be provided upon request.
  • Instructors have complete authority to require masks be worn in classes – students and parents will be contacted if requirements are changed for any reason.
  • UFCPA will limit class sizes and use the largest indoor spaces available to conduct class.
  • Each classroom will be equipped with a sanitization station (hand sanitizer, wipes, spare masks, etc)
  • Students who are ill, have tested positive for Covid-19, or have been in close extended contact with someone with Covid, should stay home and notify their instructor as soon as possible. Remote learning options are available for all classes upon request.
  • All businesses (and individuals) are currently struggling to make the best decisions as this pandemic enters yet another phase. We at UFCPA remain cautiously optimistic about the current ebbing trend of the virus, and also hope that as vaccinations continue and mitigation strategies become more targeted and effective, Covid will fade into the background of other seasonal nasty – but manageable – illnesses. However, we take the safety of our students, staff and faculty extremely seriously. We understand that some individuals are more vulnerable than others and protecting them may require increasing our precautions. We will take each day at a time, continue to monitor the data regarding Covid activity in the Valley and prioritize the safety of our Conservatory family. Any updates or changes to these policies will be communicated to all involved and updated on our website as soon as possible.
