RISING STARS for ages 4-5

As your little one gets curious with their creativity, bring them to Rising Stars Academy! Young four and five year olds have naturally large imaginations and flairs for the dramatic…let’s give it a shape and connect it to curriculum! Friday mornings at Stages Theatre Company will include connecting to peers with kinesthetic play and learning, trying on new characters and fantastic settings, and a beginning literacy exploration as each week is connected to a book.  Let’s sing, dance, act, explore, expand, and inspire excitement with your Rising Star!  *This is a drop off class with a few performance opportunities throughout each session for their tall friends to experience at the end of class.

WHEN: Fridays, 10:45am-11:45am
