11:00-11:30am – Singing – A young voice is a developing muscle; we take extra care to not overwork their vocal chords. During their singing class each student will learn how to correctly breathe while supporting their voice. Pitch is taught through vocal exercises, as well as basic placement. Songs will be taught according to session theme.
11:30-12:00pm – Prop/Costume/Scenic Craft Building – Each session has a different theme culminating in an end of session onstage showcase. Throughout the session students will work with the teacher to build some of their props, set, and character needs they will perform and work with. We do offer before care, but sorry at this time we do not offer after care for this age range. Showbiz Kidz students will need to be picked up at 12:00pm. At Theatre 360 our intention is to educate and inspire. Important to us are the values of teamwork, politeness, and sharing our creativity. Each child’s voice is important to us whether 3 or 19.
