Creative Dramatics: (Girls ages 4-6) Wednesdays 4-5pm
This enchanting curriculum unleashes the power of play and
play-making. The games we use in these classes help teach theatre
terms and skills. With fairy wings, princess hats and hula hoops our
students learn to appreciate theatre and ultimately discover the magic
of creating drama. Students learn how to use their bodies, voices and
imaginations to develop characters and stories for the stage. Creative
Dramatics enhances self-esteem, creativity and problem-solving. The
last day of class includes a sharing day for family and friends.

Your journey to the stage begins with a bit of theater history and
