Arts Avenue theater classes are designed to help the students develop excellence in theater while giving honor to God! In each class we emphasize important acting techniques, building confidence, respect for one another, and having fun! This not only helps our students achieve theatrical excellence but learn important life lessons as well.

Providing a place for students to produce a high quality show and to make life-long friends is extremely important to us! Our theater instructors focus on creating a loving and fun environment for every student while maintaining quality technique for strong actors.

Does your child like to sing, dance and act? Then we have the perfect class for them! Our Musical Review class will have so much fun as they learn about acting, singing, and dancing on the stage while preparing a review of a Broadway musical.

Our Imagine It! theater classes are for our youngest performers!  Students will get to create characters and stories using props and costumes and most of all – their imaginations!  Just imagine going to the moon, or visiting a castle, or trekking through the jungle.  All of this is possible with a little bit of creativity!  Students will also learn about using emotions and will get a taste of being on stage when they put on a performance for their family and friends at the end of the semester!  Students will work on different projects each semester so that they can take one or both sessions.

Designed for musical theater students and for dancers looking to explore additional genres, this combo class trains dancers in tap and dance for musical theater techniques. These genres are great supplements to classical ballet and jazz training.

Our Theater Academy program is for students in grades 6-8 and is designed to train our students in different aspects of theater throughout a three-year program.  Each spring semester we will teach one of our three courses and will rotate those courses so that our students learn something different each year.  By the end of the three years, our students will be well-equipped and fully prepared to enter our Senior Production group.  While it is highly recommended that students take this class each spring to be more prepared for the Junior Production class in the fall and to move into the Senior Production group in 9th grade, it is not required.  Students may also join the Academy as a 7th or 8th grader even if they did not start the Academy as a 6th grader.

Our Theater Academy class will be focusing on the following aspects this semester:

  • How To Audition (We will cover what directors are looking for in auditions, how to choose appropriate songs and monologues, what to expect in auditions, and how to have a successful audition.)
  • Props (How to create a prop chart for a production and how to get creative with making props.  Students will be helping create the prop chart for our Senior Production of Beauty and the Beast.)
  • Musical Theater (We will work on the importance of “acting” a song, how to sing properly, and will teach students some basic musical theater dance movements to help them succeed in musical theater.)

At the end of the semester we will invite family members to come get a glimpse of what we have learned.

  • Saturdays, 12:30-1:30pm
  • Grades 6-8
  • Our Spring 2021 session begins on March 6th and goes through May 22nd.

* Please note that tuition for this class will be due in March, April, and May.

Tuition

Our tuition rates are shown below. Tuition for all dance, theater, and music classes (with the exception of some of the production classes and private lessons) is calculated by the hourly tuition rate. Simply total the combined hours in class to find your student’s rate.  Example: If your student is enrolled in the Theater Combo class (a 1.5 hour class) and a Tap and Dance for Musical Theater class (a 1 hour class) your child would be in a total of 2.5 hours of class.  This would make your monthly tuition $100.

* Tuition for the senior, junior, and online production classes and any private lessons cannot be included in the hourly rate.  Those classes have set fees which are listed in the description of each class.  They are not eligible for any discounts other than the sibling discount.

There is a non-refundable registration fee of $45 due with registration. This registration fee is per family/per school year. Tuition is due on the 10th of each month.  A $15 late fee will be applied if payment is not received by that date.  We offer a $10 per month sibling discount.

For additional important tuition information (such as due dates, late fees, etc.) as well as dress code details, and what to bring to class, please refer to our handbook.
