Does your child have dreams of performing on a big stage? Perhaps you want to build your child’s confidence when speaking in front of a group of people? Either way, this fun-filled workshop will be perfect for him/her! Instructed by a credentialed Union City teacher, students will build vocal skills by using volume and inflection in their voice, and learn how to move their bodies on stage. Students will also perform skits, play games, and have an all-around good time. The exciting part is, this workshop will be held entirely at the brand new James Logan Performing Arts Center allowing your child to perform on the “big stage” everyday! The week will end with a “Young Actors’ Showcase,” a performance where family and friend will get to come to theater to see what the kids have been working on.
