Musical Theatre Grades 6-8

Sing, dance and act! Our musical theatre classes are perfect for triple threats in the making! Young performers will learn vocal technique, explore character-based song interpretation, and learn and perform choreography to songs from Broadway and other popular musicals. Students will discover their individual talents, and collaborate with others on group numbers.

​September 24 - December 3 (Thursdays) 


This program is offered on a pay-what-you-wish basis.
