Creative Play

Creative Dramatics

Creative play is a vital part of childhood and child development. Through creative and imaginative play children can grow emotionally, socially, intellectually, and even physically. The benefits of guided creative play are numerous and include: increased creativity, enhanced imagination, development of areas of interest, improved language skills, communication, memory, concentration, motor skills and abilities, active play, cognitive development, social and emotional development, etc.  Taught by Liz Paz and Diana Wooley

Beginning Acting

Acting involves a broad range of skills, including a well-developed imagination, emotional facility, physical expressivity, vocal projection, clarity of speech, and the ability to interpret drama. Acting also demands an ability to employ dialects, accents, improvisation, observation and emulation, mime, and simple stage combat. Each class will be geared toward the abilities and experiences of the students.   Teachers:   Brock Bourek or Liz Paz

Creative dramatics is about process and building the necessary skills for students to participate in theatre, to help students develop new understandings of themselves and the world around them, and to become skilled in new ways to communicate through voice and body. Creative Dramatics develop the skills necessary for a child to ultimately be able to confidently pick up a script and go from the text to the stage and understand many of the “whys” and “how to-s”.   Taught by Liz Paz

ATA (Academy of Theatrical Arts)

ATA is designed for the more experienced high school student and is taught by Artistic/Managing Director, Russell Wooley. As a former ATA student recounted: 

1. Through ATA I learned to communicate with people more effectively. 

2. Because of the exercises in ATA  I became more confident in my body and how to move more expressively.

3. I found that the exercises I learned in ATA relieved my "teenage stress and tension" as I explored creative expression.

4. I discovered that it is okay to be vulnerable.

5. I have made lifelong  friends in a positive, dynamic, fun environment.

Musical Theatre Troupe

Musical theatre is a form of performance that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting, and dance. 

Versatility

Acting is a great outlet for creativity. But what really stretches one’s’ creative muscles is acting combined with singing and dancing.. Musical theater training will not guarantee your child to develop incredible singing skills, but it does give a level of technical awareness when singing.

Confidence

Confidence is all about getting out of your comfort zone. And musical theater training does just that. 

Voice training

Musical theater training includes voice training. That doesn’t necessarily mean your child will develop

professional singing skills, but it does mean that they will learn how to use their voice better. 

Dance training

Musical theatre obviously combines song and dance, so dance training is a must. 

Stage movement

Mastering stage movement is super important for actors.  Musical theater training not only gives your child musical stamina but physical coordination that’s so useful on stage as well. Actors of all ages must have a certain awareness of their bodies and be able to move freely.

Musical theater training provides a creative outlet that can’t be beat. It teaches kids not only useful techniques and skills, but encourages them to grow, get out of their shell, and make new friends. Above everything musical theater is super fun, especially for kids!  Taught by Diana Wooley and Emili Schultz

Movement and Dance

Dance promotes neurological development. Enjoying music and learning to dance to its rhythms, stimulates the brain as well as improving physical fitness, stamina, and endurance.   It develops muscles and relieves excess stress and energy while improving flexibility and balance.  Dance develops spatial awareness: Likewise, dance teaches spatial reasoning. When you dance, you learn to gauge the space around you and most important, joyous dance is a great emotional and physical release! 

Our instructor, Emili Schultz, has years of experience teaching students of all ages and recently completed training on working with adults 55 years and up  and is excited to add that age group to her considerable resume. 

Class Voice

During their class, students will be taught the fundamentals of healthy vocal production:   1) proper posture and breathing to sing, 2) tone production, 3) diction, 4) expression, and 5) confidence in sharing their voice.   Voice Class provides an opportunity work on part singing and vocal independence.    Class experiences will reflect the "starting point" of the participants and build from that point.  Taught by Diana Wooley  who has decades of voice teaching experience, each class group will have a tailor made classroom experience. 

Theatre Improv

Seven Week Workshop Fall 2022 Taught by Brock Bourek. Improv, is a form of live theatre in which the plot, characters and dialogue of a game, scene or story are made up in the moment.  This will be a fun, lively class where creativity will be plentiful.   Improv skills can be taught and these skills will be used in everyday life in all sorts of situations.
