Grades (2nd – 6th)
In Studio 2, child artists learn and apply theatrical skills in the disciplines of dance, music, and text-based acting work, and are encouraged to explore how acting is inside all components of stage craft. More complex, age-appropriate theatre stories are explored, and scripts are introduced as a regular part of the classes. Ideas of character and story choices, theatre vocabulary, and guidelines for proper practice in theatrical work, including in rehearsal and production processes, are presented in fun and drama-based ways. These ideas are then applied in mini practice sessions in classes, as well as in productions.
At the end of the Studio class sessions, there is an opportunity for the children to share what they have learned with friends and family.
Studio 2 children are the youngest cohort that have their very own fully-staged and produced show each show in the Fall Studios. They can also participate in the spring Studio 2 & 3 Production (grades 2-12), and join in several production experience options during the summer. These performance opportunities take the children through supportive and age-designed rehearsal processes, culminating in shows that are up in front of an audience, complete with lights, sound, costumes, props and set.
