Acting & Musical Theatre

Our Acting and Musical Theatre classes are open to students of all experience levels and abilities, and students are welcome to jump in and get started at any grade level. Younger age groups engage in dramatic play while older groups delve into the application of more advanced, specialized training.

  • Students participate in themed Creative Drama classes using drama, music, movement, and visual art to explore the fun of creating characters and the art of storytelling. 
  • Books and songs are used as springboards for students to explore characters through structured, creative, and fun activities culminating in short scenes or skits created by the students. 
  • Classes promote confidence, self-esteem, and creative expression while working on skills such as active listening and collaboration.
