In addition to developing theatre arts skills, DSC classes can help you develop your ability to speak up in school, increase the creativity going into your homework and improve your classroom presentations. It is documented that having the arts in our lives makes us better students in general!
Registration remains open for the first five weeks of class!
No class 4/8 & 4/29
Footlights is about helping our youngest performers learn to express themselves through singing songs, dancing, and imaginative play. Games and activities are designed to promote listening, taking turns, following directions, and fun!
No class 4/8 & 4/29
Children learn by playing, so we use the innate imaginative capabilities of this age to learn through creative play. Your child will study life skills as theatre skills. Children will practice active listening, following directions, and taking turns, BUT DON'T TELL THEM. They'll think we're just playing games, singing songs, and making up stories.
No class 4/9 & 4/30
The Playhouse is a place to learn to make the physical and vocal choices necessary to create a character. Students will work on the fundamental theatrical skills of vocal projection, making character choices, creating stage pictures, and collaborating with other actors.
No class 4/11 & 5/2
Improvisation is an essential theatre skill for actors. Learn to think on your feet, be creative on demand and finally get the respect your deserve for being the class clown!
Get to know the show before you audition! This is a great opportunity to learn about our upcoming DownStage Center production, Honk Jr. as well as our September MainStage production of 42nd Street. Hone your Musical Theatre skills while exploring these fabulous characters—singing their songs, learning the plot and dancing in the style of the show. Then, strut your stuff in our off, off, off Broadway Production of musical selections and scenes.

In the Spring, all DSC classes shift to a rehearsal focus to prepare for our June Recital. You can have a full production experience, complete with costumes, lighting, and a stage performance, but class is still only once a week!
