► Too Dramatic!
(Ages 13-17) this 12-week class is a great learning opportunity for fledgling young actors and experienced performers, alike. In this course, students will learn various stage-acting techniques and the process of creating a character primarily through movement, all while tracing the evolution of performance throughout theatre history – from Greek choruses to the “method” of the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, and everything in between!

► Yes, and!
(Ages 8-12) this 12-week class is the ultimate beginner’s introduction to the art of improvising, or “improv.” The perfect way to build confidence, boost creativity, and provide the foundation for a unique – and fun – theatrical style, this course will focus on the basic “rules” of improvisation, using games and exercises to build skills in an exciting and expressive environment. No previous experience required.
Mondays from 4-5pm, September 11th - November 27th
