Reach high. Never stop.
Join our warm, inclusive group of actors, singers and dancers with special needs. You’ll be surrounded by friends, family, and caring, professional teachers and student aides who will help focus on your abilities and help them grow. We will spark your creativity, confidence, social interaction and self-esteem. And you’ll perform with your friends at our year-end show, a joyful night of fun and entertainment that’s open to the community.
Musical Theater class: 5-Adult
Working in age-appropriate groups, you will work with a team of teachers and student aides, following a musical theater format. You will learn through vocal warmups, songs, interpretive movements and theatrical games. You’ll focus individually on each skill: singing, dancing and acting. And then you’ll bring it all together at a year-end performance that’s open to family, friends and the community.
