About classes at YPC.

Grades K-2

These classes are suitable for students who come to YPC with all levels of theatrical experience. In each class, students will work side by side with Professional Artists to create original stories and characters, while discovering their physical and vocal abilities. Collaborating with their fellow students in an open and encouraging environment, students will have fun inventing and stretching their imaginations. Friends and family are invited back at the end of the week when the students share what they learned and created. These classes are a wonderful way to introduce the world of theatrical storytelling to your student, and foster a love of play!

Grades 3-6

These classes are suitable for students who come to YPC with all levels of theatrical experience. In each class, students will work side by side with Professional Artists to develop awareness of their physical and vocal storytelling abilities, creatively explore their favorite plays, books, and themes, and collaborate with their fellow students in an open and encouraging environment. At the end of the week we invite friends and family to come back and join their students for a workshop sharing of what they learned and created. So whether this is your first theatre class or your fiftieth you are sure to find something new and challenging!

Grades 7-12

These classes are suitable for students who come to YPC with all levels of theatrical experience. In each class, students will work side by side with Professional Artists to develop their physical and vocal skills, and creatively explore their favorite plays, books, and themes.
