Acting, Singing and Dancing Classes for Children of all Ages

The Stage School provides a unique experience for each student. In both The Company (6-16 years) and The Premier Program (4-6 years) all students receive equal instruction in acting, singing, and dance. 

In our acting classes, children explore the creation of a character through voice, movement, and imagination. Our acting instructor works with each student through creative role play, improvisation, performance text, and other fun activities.

In our singing classes, children will learn to understand and how to use their voice. We focus on skills such as projection, diction, singing on pitch, enhancing vocal range, rhythm, and vocal dynamics.

Dance classes allow children to learn about themselves and the world through movement. In our dance classes, children will develop balance, coordination, proper placement of arms and feet, timing, rhythm and how to express their body through movement.
