After School Classes
Our Quarterly Theater Class program offers Fall, Winter, and Spring sessions, each 8 weeks in length. We also offer a 6-week Mini Winter Session between Fall and Winter. We offer acting, dancing, and singing classes with a variety of themes and focuses for preschool through high school students.
If you have an idea for a class that you do not see offered, contact the Education Director – if you have at least six students and we have the space and the Instructor, you can create your own class!
All classes are listed by grade level. Exceptions are only made by permission of the Education Director.
