Descriptions of Classes
Our teachers are experienced in differentiating instruction and choosing material so that regardless of a student’s past experience or skill level, they learn and grow in our classes.
All of these classes meet weekly from mid-September to mid-May.
MUSICAL THEATRE CLASSES
These classes focus on an array of theatre arts skills, including improvisation, public speaking, stage presence, monologues, auditioning skills, singing on stage, blocking, scene work, and storytelling. All classes provide exposure to Broadway and Off-Broadway show materials, and each class participates in an end-of-year showcase in May! The showcase allows students an opportunity to practice and show what they have learned throughout the year.
STORIES and SONGS CLASSES
These classes are geared towards a younger audience. They focus on public speaking and effective communication through improvisational games and stage presence exercises, monologues and storytelling, and on-stage singing. Each class will participate in an end-of-year showcase in May! The showcase allows students an opportunity to practice and show what they have learned throughout the year.
SCRIPTS and STAGECRAFT CLASSES
These classes are intended for more experienced students looking to explore more areas of theatrical arts. Students will focus on improvisation and advanced acting skills, scripts study (specifically characterization, plot structure, monologue/dialogue, and stage direction), and stagecraft (including costumes, makeup, scenery, props, sound, and lighting). “Script and Stagecraft” classes culminate in an end-of-the-year showcase that features all students in a variety of scenes and skits created by the class. Music instruction may be included in this class, depending on student interest.
FINE ARTS CLASSES
Artists in Kindergarten through 8th grade will be immersed in the world of crazy, creative, multi-media art. This hands-on, elbow-deep art class will allow each artist to explore both traditional and non-traditional forms of visual art. Using the “Elements of Art” (Color, Value, Line, Shape, Form, Space, and Texture) as the backbone for the program, and pulling inspiration from some of the most famous artists in the world, projects will range from drawing and painting, to 3-D sculpture, to exploring printmaking, mosaics, and textile art. Students will use a variety of art mediums, such as pencils, markers, oil pastels, charcoal, watercolor, and acrylic paints, clay, plaster, fabric, melted wax, and more. Wear the largest smock you have, and come join us for a year of messy, colorful fun!
