Express Yourself! Acting Academy starts Wednesday, November 12!
Drama Develops Kids! Enthusiastic students who learn to speak out clearly and relate confidently with others will have an inside track to lifetime success. Lessons are carefully planned so that students can enroll at any time and will never repeat a lesson. Students participate in a wide range of creative activities including speech, dramatic movement, improvisation, snippets and scene starters. In a fun-filled atmosphere, our classes aim to give young people ongoing confidence, self-esteem and skill in verbal communication.
