Camps, Classes, & Workshops

Children’s Performing Arts offers a variety of educational offerings in addition to our mainstage season. These range from weekly classes, week-long camps, and even one-time workshops. The goal of these offerings is to provide students a place to keep developing their interests and skills outside of the production environment. While some educational offerings may have a performance component associated with them, the goal of these offerings is to focus on process rather than a product. Learn more about our classes in the video below!
