Learn the FUNdamentals of theatre and performance in our Theatre Skills class! Discover the thrill of acting and character development while building confidence and expressing your creative side.  Studying Theatre encourages communication, imagination and curiosity. It also nurtures concentration, leadership skills and teaches collaboration and empathy for others – all within a constructed, safe environment. Plus, it’s a great way to make new friends and it's fun!  Theatre Skills classes are kept small to focus on the individual student and their development as young artists.  Classes will consist of physical and vocal warm-ups, fun drama activities, core theatre skills study and performance. Throughout the year, families will be invited to enjoy showcase performances of the skills learned.
