Our Dance program is currently unavailable due to COVID-19. Please continue to check back for this program.
Ever wanted to act out your favorite scene from your favorite movie or show? Maybe you have wondered what it would feel like to be Queen Elizabeth or Hermione Granger – Thor or Darth Vader? Now is your chance! Performing isn’t just for those who have dreams of being a movie star. Get creative and use your imagination while we explore the basics of acting. Each class will have vocal and body warmups that include fun tongue twisters, rhythm games, and word association, and exploration of the concepts of storytelling and performing.
Class One: Ages 9+
Ever wanted to act out your favorite scene from your favorite movie or show? Maybe you have wondered what it would feel like to be Queen Elizabeth or Hermione Granger – Thor or Darth Vader? Now is your chance! We will start each class with fun games to warm up our bodies and voices. We will use improv strategies to strengthen our quick-thinking skills, build teamwork and connection. Students will pick a monologue to rehearse throughout each class and at the end of the sessions, they will perform their monologue on stage. Age appropriate monologues will be available to choose from or the students can find or even write their own! There’s no better way to build confidence and have fun at the same time. Costumes and Set Pieces are welcome but not necessary for the final performance. Costumes and props will be available to use during class or students can bring their own. Whether you have dreams of being on the stage or simply want to have fun and put yourself in someone else’s shoes – you’ll have a great time building confidence, getting creative, exploring emotion, and more.
Class Three: Ages 6-8
Have a blast exploring the concepts of storytelling and performing. Performing isn’t just for those who have dreams of being a movie star. We will focus on having fun with pretending. We will warm up our bodies and voices with fun tongue twisters and body movements – dancing, jumping, stretching, and more. The kids will rehearse the basics of performing – act like a butterfly, roar like a lion, or jump like a frog! We’ll explore emotions and imagination, implementing the concepts of storytelling with music as the instructor reads a story and the kids will act along. Throughout the sessions, we’ll focus on one specific story that the kids will perform on stage at the end of the sessions. Props and costumes available to use during class or the kids can also bring their own. Come explore with us!

Summer Musical Theater
It's BACK! Join us this summer to perform "A Year with Frog and Toad" June 21st-25th.
This whimsical show follows two great friends – the cheerful, popular Frog, and the rather grumpy Toad – through four fun-filled seasons. With the help of their friends, Frog and Toad bake cookies, swim, rake leaves, go sledding and learn life lessons along the way. Throughout the year, these friends celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make them unique and special. This show is a favorite - with challenging and entertaining songs and choreography!
Auditions are required for cast placement only and must be submitted by May 24th. This camp will run with exactly 9 students. We will have social distanced blocking, require masks, and use portable mics for safety.
