This eight-week series offers students grades 1 through 12, of all talents and abilities, an opportunity to develop performance skills in a positive environment. Each two hour class will focus on a specific element of theatre performance and incorporate Academic content standards for Visual and Performing Arts adopted by the California State Board of Education. Classes will include discussion plus lively, hands-on activities exploring how those skills can be utilized on stage and can benefit students’ lives off stage.
