JumpStart Year 1 – age 5  ~ Thursdays 3:30-4:30pm – $215

JumpStart Year 1 is a games-based exploration of musical theatre. In the Fall term students are introduced to the world of theatre in a fun, relaxed environment. In the Spring term children will explore the importance of movement & dance to tell stories on stage. This play-based program teaches students important skills for performance and for life. (This class will run again January-May 2017.)

JumpStart Year 2 – age 6 ~ Thursdays 4:45-5:45pm – $215

JumpStart Year 2 builds on the skills students learned in JumpStart Year 1. The focus is still on learning through play, however, this program begins a gentle progression into structured rehearsals.  Fall term students step into the world of acting by creating a short scene together. Lessons will be taught both through structured rehearsal and games. Spring term students will learn a short song and dance taught through both structured rehearsal and play. (This class will run again January-May 2018.)

Acting Out – ages 8-12  ~ Tuesdays 4:00-5:00pm – $215

In this class, students will be introduced to the exciting world of theatre by working on their acting skills through a variety of fun theatre games.  Students will be encouraged to develop their imagination, creativity and self-confidence in a relaxed atmosphere.  This class is ideal for students who have little to no acting experience and want to explore their dramatic side without the pressure of a final performance.  The final scheduled class will be open to family to watch (and possibly participate!) (This class will run again January-May 2018.)

Acting In – ages 8-12 ~ Tuesdays 3:30-5:00pm – $320

Now that students have learned the basics, it is time to start looking into character development.  In this course, students will be given a character that they will study throughout the course using various acting techniques and tools.  Students will not only learn how to identify their own habitual patterns that identify their unique personality, but also learn how to develop these patterns for their character, creatiing a new and distinct body and voice.  A final in-class performance will showcase monologues students have worked on to show off their character.  (The followup “Acting With” will run January-May 2018.)
