Class Description

This Winter session of classes will feature fun and exciting workshops for students ages 8-18 taught by educated and professional teachers. Each class night students will attend a new workshop in the areas of dance, drama, music, or specialty theater. Workshops are tailored to specific age ranges and skill level. Please note this when selecting workshops. 

Most workshops offered the first four weeks of classes (weeks 1-4) will be repeated during the final four weeks of classes (weeks 5-8). There are a few workshops only offered once during the session. This allows your child the opportunity to participate in a workshop that may have occurred on the same night as a different workshop they attended. (i.e. If your student on week 1 attends a dance workshop, but also really wanted to attend the drama workshop offered week 1, that drama workshop will be offered again during weeks 5-8 for them to participate). 

PLEASE NOTE: This Winter session does not include Our Gang classes on Thursday nights. Our Gang will be taught on Tuesday nights as part of our Enrollment Show class.
