Dance Classes and Private Voice Lessons
Sept. 28, 2020 - Mar. 13, 2021 | Registration opens July 29, 2020
Our education department recognizes consistent dance training is critical to an actor’s development but understand it can be overwhelming to a beginner. So, we structure our dance classes with the beginner in mind, laying the foundations to help our students feel more confident with terminology and choreography. These classes are technique driven without the element of a final showcase. Students are encouraged to take these classes for multiple sessions, as new materials are used to explore the same foundational concepts.
Additionally, we recognize that many young performers are not confident in their singing skills, and group singing classes can be intimidating. Private lessons offer them the chance to work on the their voice in a safe one-on-one setting, until they are ready to perform in public or in front of others. This is a great entry point for new students, or for those continuing to make progress in their personal goals.
