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. 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.

Classes are listed with "best for" ages. The guidelines are flexible based on current student skill level.

Theatre Classes

For fall 2020, CAS Theatre will be offering a new, project based learning, hybrid class style. These classes have new curriculum specifically designed to engage students in both in person and virtual learning opportunities. This hybrid model was designed to help ensure our students stay as safe as possible while engaging in theatrical opportunities.

The hybrid classes will have limited in person learning that will take place on a specific date and time. Much of the hybrid learning will happen during weekly live Zoom class meetings led by a CAS Theatre faculty member.

This project based learning model will allow students to prepare for, and perform in, an end of session theatre performance. Each class will have specific performance opportunities for students to show off what they have been working on during the session.
To make the performance happen in the safest way possible, students will film their part during final week of classes. On December 10, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. all friends and family our invited to virtually join us and enjoy the BW CAS theatre community!

Private Lessons

Theatre may enroll in private lessons to receive one-on-one instruction from a Community Arts School faculty member. Private lessons allow each student to develop independently through the careful guidance and mentorship of expert, credentialed faculty. Students that are interested in private lessons should have a specific goal or intention behind their interest in private instruction.

 

There are a limited number of dance private lessons available each semester. Theatre private lessons are not guaranteed and are based on instructor and studio availability.
