Theater & Performance Program
Theater - Theater is an introduction to the basic acting techniques that can be used to build a character for the stage. Through improv, script analysis and theater games, we examine the craft of acting while exploring the various avenues an actor can take to create a polished and dynamic performance. Our students are provided opportunities to actively apply these techniques through group scenes, plays and even writing their own material. 

Music - This course is an opportunity for students to learn more about music by primarily singing with a group ensemble/choir. Additionally, we explore the basic tenets of music theory and vocal technique though vocal warm ups, and 2 and 3 part harmony singing. This is achieved while simultaneously building a song repertoire book for public performance. We are currently learning music for our upcoming holiday stroll.
