NEW FOR FALL 2014…
PERFORMING ARTIST’S WORKSHOP

Park Playhouse is pleased to introduce a new series of classes, starting in Fall,2014, aimed at giving young, beginner-level students a chance to get their start in the theatre! Whether getting over stage fright, learning acting basics, gaining introductory vocal lessons or building dance skills, these classes give young students their first taste of performing on stage in front of an audience and their peers.

Performing Artists’ Workshop (PAW) is broken down into three segments each week, with each student getting a half hour of dance training, acting exercises and vocal lessons during the weekly 90-minute class session. Whether your child has been in a few plays or never performed before, our staff will support them, make them feel welcome and develop their skills for future success.

Classes will be held Saturdays from 3:00 to 4:30pm.

Tuition is $250 per class term. Tuition assistance/payment plan available.

All classes to be held at The Eba Dance Studios in Albany

This session’s classes run from September 6
through November 15.
