Dance Fever

Moving to the music of Broadway, students will learn choreography as they take on the challenge of storytelling through movement.

Incredible Improv

Improvisation is a great way to learn to think on your feet, gain confidence, and focus your creative energy. And it’s a lot of fun, too!

Show Description:

Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek. One day, Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits who have been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he’s handed a task — if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Shrek tries to win Fiona’s love and vanquish Lord Farquaad, but a fairytale wouldn’t be complete without a few twists and turns along the way.

There is a part for everyon in this dazzling adventure story!
