Our Philosophy

  1. Summer Camps: one or two week classes offered in morning, afternoon or full day sessions.

  3. Spring Semester: After school programs, typically between 4 pm and 7 pm
  4. Workshops & Intensives: Classes & workshops outside of the semester calendar.

Financial Aid
Our goal is for our classes to be accessible to any interested student. Please contact us about need-based aid including discounts and payment plans.

CLASS POLICIES

Ages
Classes levels are determined by the school grade in which the student is enrolled in the fall. No experience necessary.

Final Showcase
Each class will host a showcase on the final day of class, unless otherwise noted. Especially for our younger students, these exhibitions won't be complete or polished theatrical performance, but will be a showcase of the activities from the classroom.
