School Year Programs for Ages 7 to 14

Broadway Bound Classes
Seven’s, Eight’s, Nine’s & Ten’s

We build confidence and performance skills through supportive experiences that include voice projection, acting, choreography, costume and scenery design, and the language of theater. We continue the musicianship spiral travelling upwards and outwards, expanding your child’s musical understandings and abilities. Words are not enough to describe the blossoming talents of these continuing children. Lessons in voice, rhythm, music reading, listening, and recorder are a part of every class.  The year ends with a finale performance, alternating  Wizard of Oz, Hansel & Gretel, Free to Be You and Me, and Jungle Book.  One hour once a week.
