Acting: This class focuses on establishing the "building blocks" of acting with which the students can begin analyzing text and creating characters. Older students may also spend time learning different period acting styles.

Singing: Students will be introduced to the basic components behind proper vocal technique. Using a variety of exercises, they will begin exploring their own musicality and rhythm. Emphasis will be placed on ear training and breath support. More advanced concepts such as harmony are added as students work on specific songs.

Theatre Dance/Movement: Younger students will be taught to utilize their bodies to find their mental and physical centers while developing their imagination and focus. Older students will be provided with a working knowledge of the essential elements involved in dance for the theatre. Styles may include jazz, modern and hip hop.
