Intro to Music and Drama -
Intro is a fun, noisy exploration of music and drama for preschoolers ages 4 and 5. This class is a great introduction to socialization, group learning, self-expression, public speaking and using imagination, creativity and sound to express yourself. Intro to Music and Drama students use creative play to learn how to work with other towards a common goal. Skills learned in this class will benefit young learners in many aspects and is a great preparation for Drama 1 and private music lessons. Intro classes meet once a week for 45 minutes and class size is limited to six students.
Drama 1 & Drama 2 -
Our Drama classes are broken up by age groups. Drama 1 is for children age 6 through 9 and Drama 2 is for kids 10 to teen. Many concepts of drama are explored including theater games, improvisation and scene study, creative expression and listening skills. Students develop their self esteem, ability to speak publicly and express themselves creatively. The teacher guides the students in a way that makes discovering drama, improvising and listening skills easy and fun. This class is an excellent group activity. Ideas learned complement each other and help the child develop strong skills in dramatic acting. All plays used have educational and wholesome themes. Classes meet once a week for an hour.
- We also offer private instruction in Drama for advanced students preparing for plays, television, advertising or film parts.
- Students in our drama classes do an in-class presentation for parents in December and a full performance in June!
- Many students who take our classes go on to succeed in school plays and other acting and performing opportunities. In fact, Luca Tenuto, one of the first students in our drama program, has acted in the films "Happyish", "Homecoming" "Celebrity Ghost Stories" and in a pilot with Philip Seymour Hoffman!
