Theatre Classes, Lessons and Camps

The theatre program at the BW Community Arts School incorporates class instruction for youth. Starting with a foundation of playing, students explore the world of theatre and ensemble work through games and storytelling. With multiple 6-week long classes offered, students have a chance to customize their schedule. After the foundation has been set students continue to develop their artistry while taking an in-depth look at the fundamentals of bringing a story to life. With Acting, Improv, Music Theatre and Ensemble work students evolve their theatrical passions.
