Take a Class

ACT Classes 


ACT classes seamlessly integrate mindfulness and spatial awareness using theatre games and creative movement activities.  Learning to collaborate with others, confidently express themselves, and develop an appreciation for the performing arts is all part of the experience. Our goal is to help children develop increased confidence, creativity, and self-expression skills whether onstage or at school. Come Play with Us!

Instructor Libby Pope

What's your child's favorite magical creature? Unicorns, wizards, fairies and dragons will come to life in this fun-filled class with gorgeous costumes that help little ones expand their imaginations every week! Each class students will listen to a story, use creative movement to "act it out" and usually do a fun craft. Registered families are welcome to use the Burgundy playground before and after class on Saturdays too!

Act Out Fall Stories!


Ages 6-8

Saturdays, 9:00am - 10:00am

Instructor Imani Thaniel

Children who love reading, listening to stories, and could be described as “dramatic” will find a home in this class with ACT!  They’ll use creative movement and fun vocal exercises to act out characters from favorite Fall stories, while strengthening their listening and speaking skills each week. Students will laugh a lot in this class where they get to be silly in a supportive environment. Children will expand their creativity and self-expression skills in a space with no wrong answers, just pure fun! There will be a short presentation for parents onstage at the final class. Dress-up clothes from home are welcome!

Instructor Libby Pope

Young dancers and singers will learn musical theatre basics - or build on what they know already - in this fun creative movement class that will help them learn how to act out songs with enthusiasm and lots of energy. Beginners are welcome to join this group and shine onstage at the final class during a presentation for parents. No previous experience is required. The instructor will meet each student at their current level of experience so that everyone learns new techniques and has fun!


Friend or Foe?


Ages 9-15

Saturdays, 10:30am-11:30am

Instructor Ronald Benson-El Jr.

Students can combine unique stage combat workshops and character/ story building using their favorite action figure or super hero this Fall! Instructor Ronald Benson-El was recently a fight captain of the Netflix production Money Heist: The Experience NYC. A kind and calm instructor, Ronald will safely teach basic techniques to execute stage combat using prop swords. These basic skills include various blocks, parries, slashes, avoids, footwork etc. Students will also learn basic swordsmanship languages and terms including a breakdown of the parts of a sword and glossary terms and definitions of a variety of actions and moves. Students will also work throughout the workshop to bring their favorite characters and scenes to life using their new skills and choreography Ronald helps them develop. The goal of the class is for students to safely demonstrate their new skills while acting as their characters for parents on the last day of class. Young actors interested in beefing up their resumes and developing new skills to use in future productions will love this class!


Masks are not required for class.

Any student who wishes to remain masked is welcome to do so.
