Theatre & Music

Imagination and collaboration!

Our Theatre & Music programs for preschoolers venture into the creative and colourful landscape of imagination.

Theatre and drama classes can help young actors develop self-confidence through performing, grow listening skills through storytelling, and promote coordination through movement. Fun and interactive music classes mix song, percussion, and musical stories to explore the many elements of music – from melody and rhythm to pitch and measured time.

Parent & Me classes

Nurture a love of music, movement, and theatre in your little one! Sing and play along in the classroom – Parent & Me classes help our youngest students get comfortable in the studio while you share your love of the arts.

Why start theatre and music classes

Theatre and music help inspire creativity in young minds! Many studies report that when kids experience arts education early in life, they go on to enjoy tangible, long-term, and life-changing benefits. Improved self-esteem, heightened problem-solving, and higher academic scores in math and science are just some of the benefits that little ones gain from the arts.

Half-day Art Immersion – classes as unique as your young artist!

Art, dance, drama, music – in our half-day immersion programs, children ages 3-5 have access to many art forms in a class package that suits their interests. Early Learning classes help little ones develop essential skills such as focus, self-confidence, and creativity – preparing them for a lifetime of opportunity.
