How We Work

Our comprehensive programming of singing, dancing, and acting will encourage your child to grow not only as a performer but as a person. Theater teaches collaboration, social skills, accountability, focus, and confidence.  Throughout each summer camp day, our students will work together in acting class through scene work and improv, problem solve through movement in dance class, and build confidence and focus in voice.  At the end of each day students will collaborate and celebrate their new found talents. 

Whether you are just starting out or a seasoned performer, we welcome you and can’t wait to take your talents to the next level!

Age Groups

Students are broken into 2 or 3 age groups depending on how large enrollment is. Below are the typical age ranges we end up having. HOWEVER, please note these are not guaranteed. 

If you want your students to be together, please let us know when you enroll. We may not be able to accommodate all requests.

Group 1: Ages 6 to 8

Group 2: Ages 9 to 11

Group 3: Age 12 and up
