10-Week Workshops for Motivated Students
During the school year, we offer peformance classes for middle schoolers (Monday evenings) and high school students (Sunday evenings).  These 10-week workshops offer motivated students an opportunity to work at a more advanced level, while in a supportive and fun-filled environment.  We deliberately keep class sizes small so students can receive the individual coaching that will help them grow as performers and individuals.

Students first focus on the acting process, sensory exercises, and improvisation work.  Monologue, scene and/or musical work follow later in the semester.  Students are guided through the process of learning how to craft a song or monologue, and major emphasis is placed on building the self-confidence of young artists.   Each workshop culminates with a Performance Showcase, giving students the opportunity to share their work with family and friends.and grow as performers and individuals.
