Recreational Dance Classes
Dance skills are extremely important for today’s musical theater performer. That is why we are happy to offer a variety of classes to help our performers of all ages become more well-rounded and confident dancers. These classes will allow dancers of all skill levels to improve and perform their best at auditions or in dance-heavy shows. Our recreational dance program is led by Cristen Skoglund, an OCSA dance instructor who has been dancing competitively and professionally for most of her life. Read more about Cristen here!

SPOTLIGHT ORIGINALS Have you ever wanted to write a story and have it performed for a live audience? Now is your chance! Allowing our imaginations to run wild, we will learn the basics of script writing and investigate what it takes to bring the characters from the page to the stage. Every student will gain experience in brainstorming the different aspects of putting on a show from set design to costuming and everything in between. The final product will be a show written, designed, and produced by YOU!
MUSICAL THEATER WORKSHOPS One of our most popular classes! Our musical theater workshops are a weekly rehearsal-based class, that performs a small-scale showcase at the end of the 12-week season. With more focus on the craft of the theater, students will learn the fundamentals of what it takes to put together a show, including acting, singing, and dance numbers. Our workshops provide a safe and welcoming environment for our performers who need more experience before taking on a mainstage production or just want to hone their skills and have fun. Enrollment for our workshops is now very limited to allow students more focused time with the instructor as well as individual moments to shine during the show.
