Broadway Beginners

It’s never too early to act, sing, and dance! Young children love to hear and tell stories. Musical theater is the ultimate form of storytelling, because it uses words, song, and movement to convey narrative.

In this joyful, fun, and instructive class, children learn how to access their natural affiinity for song, creative movement, and story.

In addition to learning stage technique, young performers will build confidence and communication skills.
