Cute Kids Posing Against Wall

For most of their day, elementary kids know that there are 2 results to answering a question: Right or wrong. But in drama…there is no wrong answer!

​This allows them to really explore the depths of their creativity and that is encouraged in each of the hour long sessions.

Middle School

6-8th grade is such a pivotal moment in the development of a child. A lot of growing up happens very fast.

​Drama Lab for this age group is really about our ABC's. Acceptance, Belonging, Confidence. We want every student to feel like they can still be silly and have fun with each other.

Group Seflie

We are excited to be offering Drama Lab for adults this year.

The focus on these classes is not just about developing acting skills, but improving listening, leadership, problem solving, confidence, and more.

The hour long sessions go by so fast, you'll want to keep playing games with your new friends.
