Acting Classes

We are thrilled to be offering Acting Classes to our community here at the studio. Many of our music students are involved in musical theater productions and have aspirations to learn acting in tandem with music…so we’re excited to offer both!
These 5 week classes are designed for students 12-18 and are a great opportunity to learn in an encouraging, creative, positive and fun environment. We will also have performance opportunities for interested students.

Classes are held at the studio on Saturdays from 2:30-4:00 PM.
Tuition is $125 per 5 week class.  Sign up for all 10 weeks for only $195.
(There is an Annual Student Registration Fee of $25 per student.)
