    What do children learn in theatre arts class?

    Little performers reach pre-professional levels of acting and performance at theatre arts classes. Ranging in genres from classic to contemporary to musical theatre, theatre programs immerse your child in high quality drama training to prepare them for future roles and auditions. Kids and teens develop their basic theatre knowledge, including the parts of the stage, beginner character studies, and stage decorum.

    Programs also teach oral performance skills, such as enunciation, tone, and projection, advanced character study, scriptwriting, and audition techniques. Some intermediate classes even introduce acting for television and film, which requires a set of skills different from acting on the stage. 

    Final performances are typically held at the end of the program’s run, showcasing your child’s budding talents on stage. These final showcases include Sketches, plays, and musical theatre performances. Classes are available for children as young as 4 years old. Younger students begin with basic training while teenagers typically perform more elaborate productions. Prices for these camps begin at $20, and are purchasable per week.

    Advanced theatre arts classes

    At some advanced theatre arts programs, singing and dancing are integrated into the curriculum. With musical theatre in the mix, your son or daughter learns dance and vocal techniques. While acting, singing, and dancing together may seem overwhelming, many of the best actors in the world are indeed a “triple threat.” 

    Advanced theatre arts for older kids and teens encourages their overall growth. Kids  and teens develop their acting and performance skills whilst having fun and making new friends. Students often perform as a group, as well.

    Why go to theatre arts classes?

    Where else are kids and teens going to feel supported and imaginative than at theatre arts classes? Here are a few things your child may experience during class:

    • Professional theatre preparation. For aspiring actors, theatre classes provide students with the right tools and skills for future acting growth. In fact, audition preparation is an important part of class, increasing their confidence in both acting and other pursuits.
    • Writing opportunities. Scriptwriting is included in all theatre arts classes. Your child learns all storytelling elements during this process, such as exposition, conflict, and dialogue. Practicing writing is a great way for kids and teens to expand their vocabularies and begin writing clearly, an important skill in many school subjects and careers. 
    • Games and improvisation. At theatre arts classes, instructors know how to have fun. During class time, kids and teens participate in popular theatre games such as One Word Story, Tableau Olympics, and Zip, Zap, Zop. Improvisation training is another important element of theatre training. Kids and teens learn to make up funny stories by working off of everyone’s ideas in the moment. 
    • Build confidence. Theatre classes get kids comfortable with the stage and the spotlight. Your child will perform in front of their peers, families, and even strangers throughout class. They learn skills that will help them with public speaking, and boost self-esteem.
