ACTING
Students use role-playing and basic creative drama exercises to bring scenes and stories to life. Working on self- expression, acting exercises, improvisation and using our imagination we will help the kids create characters and scenes.  The class focuses on a wide range of creative activities involving speech, creative movement and theatre games to help the ever growing mind of the creative kid! A great opportunity to make new friends while developing self-confidence!

PAINTING & DRAWING

Students will learn the elements of art foundations through various projects focused in color, shape, line, shape, form, and texture.

COMIC & CARTOON DRAWING

Students will bring their illustrations and imaginations to life by learning various  techniques in comic drawing and work on illustrating a comic strip. They will focus on facial expressions, story ideas, backgrounds, and how to perfect their own personal style.

HIP HOP DANCE

This exciting and energetic dance is a blast! Come dance along to upbeat music while memorizing fun choregraphed routines. We will take time each class to keep our bodies in shape by warming up with some stretching and light exercise. We will then transition into learning and practicing dance steps together in a relaxed and supportive environment.
