Fairytale Theatre - Ages 5-8  , 9-10:15am

Another round of Fairytales! These young students will learn skills associated with the performance of theatre. This includes acting, improvisation and theatre games, teamwork building, props, and costumes. Each week the emphasis will be on a fairytale. Taught by ATY Alumn, Iris Tuller.

Improv Theatre - Ages 9-19, 10:30am-12pm

An introduction for anyone to learn the fundamentals of improvisation…the basic tools, rules, and philosophy…through games, drills, and simple scenes. It's VERY fun, VERY supportive and noncompetitive. Taught by local performer, Waren Weinstein.

Stage Combat - Ages 12-19 , 1pm-2:30pm

Students will engage in choreographed hand-to-hand combat maneuvers in a safe environment. Students fall, strike, and learn the best position for creating the illusion of physical combat. And, again, the focus is how to do all this safely with maximum visual effect!

Voice Auditions - Ages 15 - 19 , 10:30am-12pm

Improve your self confidence and vocal skills while learning how to audition for shows or competitions. This class will touch base with music theory along with proper breathing and vocal techniques. There will be an emphasis on various vocal styles and musical genres so each student can understand and apply those differences, resulting in a versatile, well-rounded vocalist! Taught by local vocalist, Austin Rochon.

A limited number of fee waivers are available for all classes. Call or email for more information!
