As promised, here are a few more “closer looks” at the classes that still have openings starting in January. The classes we are highlighting today are taught by professionals in their field, each creating a warm, encouraging atmosphere for students to learn at their own pace. Whether they are beginners or more advanced, students will enjoy the opportunity to get creative in these courses!
As always, we are offering an Open House to new families on Thursday, January 3 at noon, where you can meet the teachers and register for classes on site (if they still have space). It will be held at our classroom location – Immanuel Lutheran Church in Attleboro, MA.
This class, led by four times published children’s author, Nicole Cannella, will allow students the creative space to assist in the creation of a children’s book. In this class, we will bond and brainstorm, rhyme and read, create and collaborate- all culminating in a staged reading showcase for loved ones and a finished piece with bragging rights … “Look, I helped write a book!” Read more about Nicole (and check out her new book!) here.

From the Page to the Stage: Dramaturgy
In this course, students will use a variety of one act plays and scenes from Shakespearean comedies to learn about the art and mastery of dramaturgy. At the end of the course, there will be an opportunity to present a staged reading of the scene edited by the class. Dramaturgs basically study the background of a play, diving into the script and understanding how you keep the author’s and director’s vision when staging a production. Led by Melissa Lamb.

Miss Pam amazes audiences with her costume designs for our big productions… but her classes are cozy and encouraging. In this class, beginner students will learn the fundamentals of sewing machine basics and basic tools needed for sewing, while more advanced students may select the pattern you have always wanted to make and step by step creation will occur during class time.

Here’s your chance to get your toes tapping, in a relaxed atmosphere. This class will encourage beginners while offering some new combinations for those who have taken tap before. No tap shoes necessary! Just a shoe with a flat sole will work. Junior Tap is for ages 7-12. Workshops for ages 12-18 are offered towards the end of the semester. Click here for more!
As always, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us here, or click on the social media icons on this page. We hope to see you in the New Year!
