Salsa Dance Workshop Description
Introduce your children to the FUN and EXCITING rhythms of Salsa. They will learn the basic Salsa steps and body movement through interactive play, isolations, music interpretation and choreography. This class is non-competitive and is great for beginners as well as seasoned dancers.

Acting Workshop, ages 4-7
In this introductory class, students will learn the basics of acting and storytelling through fun theater exercises and improvisation. Students will practice listening, team-building, and communicating. Students will use their imaginations to learn about character and story development using animals, locations, and props as our inspiration. The main focus of the class will be collaboratively creating an original story from scratch and in that process gain self-confidence in themselves and their artistic creations and choices. They will also work together to create a scenic backdrop for their story. As a class we will end the process with a final theatrical performance together to reinforce learning and experience performing in front of an audience.

Acting Workshop, ages 8-11
In this introductory class, students will learn the art of acting, storytelling, character development and improvisation through a series of varying exercises and a structured rehearsal process. Students will practice listening, team-building, empathy and communication skills as well as what is it like to work with a script. Students will learn basic rehearsal and theater etiquette and a variety of theatrical terms during the process. As a class we will create a final theatrical performance to reinforce learning and gain experience performing in front of an audience.

Filmmaking Workshop
In this introduction to filmmaking class, students will learn the basics of film production while crafting their own stories. Each student will have the chance to work with the camera, create original ideas, and present their projects.
