This class is for all of those creative minds out there who may feel unsure that performance arts class is a good fit for their needs. Though activities that are modified to allow for processing and developmental challenges we will explore many aspects of theatre arts. A small class size ensures a setting for students to get more individual attention. Instructors encourage parents and caregivers to provide information about behaviors, interests, and language that is commonly used in the home to create a safe and productive learning environment for each participant.
We begin with a focus on storytelling and collaboration. This will allow us to devise original short sketches that will ultimately be performed by the end of our spring session. Those who are comfortable with the idea of performing will be cast in leading roles. Those who may need more time to warm up to being in front of an audience will have opportunities in supporting ensemble roles and technical theatre aspects so that we all work together to create an experience for an audience of family and friends to enjoy at the end of our Spring classes.
We are also offering some one-day workshops for this group if you’d like less of a commitment or just want to try it out. They’re listed on the Workshop Page.
The class meets for the whole year, but if space is available, we can pro-rate the tuition for a later add.

Exploring theatre arts is an incredible way to work on communication skills, find creative outlets, and celebrate the world around us. These one-day workshops allow students with special developmental and processing needs to try out various facets of theatre arts through games, discussion, and activities. The small class-size will allow for instructors to give these curious minds individual attention and for the pace of the class to follow the needs of the group. This theatre arts series is an excellent opportunity to see if theatre is a viable outlet for your child’s creative impulses without the commitment of an ongoing class. Each workshop is a self-contained introduction to a specific theatre arts concept so participants can try one at any time and return to discover a new performance aspect whenever they please.
