OVERTURE

Curved Line

A LA CARTE WEEKLY PROGRAM

July 8 – August 11, 2024

for students entering grades 1 to 3 (grade 4 upon request)

Monday-Friday, 8:30am-2:30pm

Location: TBD

 

THE PROGRAM

Curved Line

The Overture program uses different weekly themes to introduce our youngest performers to acting, dancing, singing, and design in a fun and supportive environment! Each day, students are exposed to various theatrical techniques, exercises, and games to expand their confidence and imagination.

Using these developed skills, students work with our staff to create their own individualized characters and an original play. The play, combined with a dance and song, is rehearsed, and then shared for friends and family on Friday.

ENROLLMENT

Curved Line

Limited to 20 students each week, Overture is a five-week à la carte program, meaning that you can enroll in one week, five weeks, or anything in between!

Subject matter and materials won’t be repeated; a student who attends only one week won’t feel out of place, and a student who attends all five weeks will be continually challenged!
