What We Teach:


The acting and dramatic curriculum is designed to develop the actor as an individual artist and as an effective member of a creative ensemble. Each course draws from a continuum of specific techniques to develop the actor’s mind, voice, and body for a confident and honest performance before a live audience. Improvisation and scripted scenes provide fluency in the acting fundamentals of conflict, action, and given circumstances. As collaboration is essential to the creation of live theatre, the actor will develop skills of willingness and personal motivation, to listen and respond, to find creative solutions for problems as a member of a team, to confidently give voice to original ideas and grow their respect for the ideas of others.


The dance curriculum at Theatre 360 provides a solid technical foundation taught in a professional, nurturing environment. All of our students benefit from the structure and discipline of a progressive dance training program. Our dance courses are lead by a staff of talented, professional dancers, who are dedicated to helping their students achieve success as dancers and performers.


The voice curriculum is designed to introduce students to fundamental vocal techniques including breath control, phrasing, enunciation, interpretation, and presentation. In-class exercises will help refine and strengthen the student’s developing voice.

All voice classes teach:

– Warm-up exercises
– Correct posture
– Basic vowel sounds and correct articulation
– Relaxation exercises
– Improving placement, volume, vocal range, dynamics
– Developing basic music theory
– Stage presentation
