Let’s StArt | 0 – 24 months
The ultimate “play”group, this 10-week musical-theatre based program lets babies, toddlers and parents connect with each other in a fun and creative environment.

The perfect introduction to musical theatre, this class is full of music, movement, imaginative games and creative play! Your child will form new friendships as they develop their self-confidence and cognitive development.
School of Broadway | 8- 13 years
School of Broadway has been developed for students in homeschooling or alternative education programs. Incorporate the performing arts into their curriculum through this fun and educational program filled with song, movement and acting. Students will learn about the world of theatre while building confidence, communication, creativity and cognitive development.
Come ready to hit the stage Broadway style! No previous experience is required for these classes focused on the three aspects of musical theatre – singing, acting and movement. Students will build their Broadway repertoire and gain greater confidence that will have a positive effect on other aspects of their lives.
Seasoned young actors and actresses will be challenged using a master-class model (musical theatre solos, monologues etc.). Students will expand their theatre education, explore their individual potential, and develop the foundational skills needed to seek out roles in mainstage productions.
Previous experience is required and auditions will be held in order to gain acceptance into these courses.
In this class young people will be able to develop their acting skills through theatre sports, monologue work and scene study/play analysis. Lessons will be focused primarily on learning the process, with a showcase of the students’ work at the end of the term.
Speak Up! | 9 – 13 years
This five-week program has been developed to help kids get out from behind the screens and develop public speaking skills. Local broadcast journalist Carmen Liebel is the mastermind behind this fun and interactive class that will help youth feel less nervous in front of a crowd and give them the confidence to speak up and share their amazing ideas! Through presentations and speeches, students will gain the right tools to feel relaxed delivering their messages and be empowered to communicate more effectively.
