Performing Arts Musical Imagination and Movement Adventures | Ages 2 1/2 -4. (Great class for siblings!) What will you discover when you stumble upon some forgotten fairy dust? Join Fiona the fairy and her friend Francesca as you help them make magic on their very own fairy adventures! Students delight in helping Fiona and Francesca in their adventures! Join us every week for a new musical journey while singing, dancing and acting along the way. Students make new friends, connect to the musical theatre, and build a community among young artists.

Our programs are designed around creating staged musical theatre performances through the voices, visions, and ideas of our students.

This is the perfect place for the young performer who is looking for a energized class to let their talents shine. Harness the acting tools you already possess – your body, voice, and imagination – to physically express ideas, transform into multi-dimensional characters, and tell moving stories. Gain skills in creative thinking and public speaking, building confidence in yourself and your craft. Students choose current pop hits and musical theatre songs to develop an original musical using their own creative ideas to help write the play! They receive a speaking role, sing and dance in the final class production. Skills explored during this class include script writing, singing, dancing, and acting. The session culminates with a final performance that will be performed during our last class. Instructor: Margo Proeh, Gabrielle Garza & Children’s Theatre Staff . Min/Max 4/16.
