THEATER CLASSES

 
 

 

As of now, our Session I classes will run from the week of August 16th through the week of December 20th; we will keep in touch with families throughout the season with any changes to the schedule.

Our August class times will be getting-to-know-you classes as well as helping with props, learning fun dance combos, and playing fun theater games! This will give families the opportunity to see if this class will be able to work with schedules, we will also be able to welcome additional students who would like to sign up later in August or who will be available starting in September! Please keep in touch with us to let us know what you are thinking; we will continue to work with families to make these opportunities available. We understand families are figuring out school and work schedules and are happy to let you know how our classes can fit with your schedules this fall.
 
Tuition for Session I is invoiced monthly through QuickBooks online, along with a materials fee. Please check our registration site for additional details, or feel free to email with questions.

NEW CLASS!

Storytelling Through Theater (Ages 10-18)

Thursdays 5-6

Storytelling Through Theater is a great opportunity for students to let their creativity shine! Each student gets to write a short play and codirect with teacher Hannah. Students will cast fellow classmates in their play, help pick out costumes and props, and help shape the script! Each student will also be cast in classmates' plays. Students will also participate in creative writing activities, improv games and scene work. All of the students' plays will be performed once at the end of Session I at our studio for family, friends, fellow VELOCITY Dance and Theater students and staff!
(Performers MUST be available for the performance in order to participate in this class)

 

In addition to our weekly theater classes listed above, students also have the following opportunities. Please email VELOCITY to find out more!
 
 
 
Competitive Monologue and Scene opportunities: 
 
Students have the option to compete a monologue or a scene with another student. BravO! Dance and Talent Competition offers the wonderful chance for theater performers to compete at Regional and National competitions. Each student must have an audition/meeting with teacher Hannah to be evaluated before determining if the performer is ready to compete.
 
Students who compete need to keep actively working on the craft of learning and growing as an actor and performer. To this end, students are required to participate in either session of a VDT theater class, or perform in a play or musical throughout the studio season at school, a community theater, or a professional theater.
 
 

Recreational Musical Theater Dance Classes (Ages 6-8, 9-12, 13-15, 16-18)

Students will learn a fun, new musical theater dance combination every Saturday for 30 minutes. This is a drop in style class so you can come as often or not as you'd like working with your own schedule.
