    Themed camps each focusing on a completely unique aspect of performing arts, culminating with a free showcase at the end.

    Our programs are perfect for first timers to veterans of the stage. If you are looking for a program that educates, nurtures and trains your budding performer - look no further.


    Once-A-Week classes:

  • Auditioning 101 - a class to learn and polish the art of auditioning.

  • Acting workshops provide you with rich drama skills, taught by professionals who know what it`s like to try and break into the acting game. You`ll learn great auditioning tips, improvisation skills, how to work on your stage presence, and techniques to get more comfortable in front of directing staff. Even if you've starred in your school`s drama productions, it always helps to flex your acting muscle with new peeps in fun, new situations.


  • Broadway Voice - a class to polish and hone natural talents and abilities.

  • Let's be honest and upfront: The world of show business is a tough place for kids. The more your child can do on stage with poise and confidence, the more success he or she will have in the real world. Through our program, both in classroom settings and on our professional stage, your child will have great singing opportunities for kids and practice to gain that stage presence needed to look and feel comfortable, at home, and at ease in this very adult milieu. The more comfort and nonchalance your child exhibits on stage and in the spotlight, the better his, her chances are of success. This confidence is a quality that will further your child's success in ALL areas of his or her life!
