Ballet for older students, Sewing, and more – starting soon!

Don’t let the snow get you down! We have some new classes starting this week, and being creative *always* helps with the winter blues.

Recreational Ballet

Get moving with our Recreational Ballet class – highly recommended for anyone pursuing the performing arts! Heather Brown creates a warm, encouraging environment where beginners feel comfortable and those with experience are challenged.  Click here for more information!




Sewing classes

Likewise, students have thrived under the instruction of Seamstress Pam Macbeth, who teaches our sewing classes and fills the classroom not just with attention to the details of sewing,  but with laughter and love. Students don’t want to leave, but when they do, they proudly display the new creation they made. Click here for more information!



The TIP Crew working on the lights

We started our TIP Crew last week (Tech in Progress), but it’s not too late to jump in and learn all about the stage – from lights to sound to scenery and beyond. Students love exploring our amazing theatre and learning all about it!



We also have two four-week sessions of TAP starting in April! So although the year is coming to a close, there is still lots of opportunities for students to #learngrowshine.


As always, contact us if you have any questions.
