Summer Classes – 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!

YPC’s classes and camps are designed for the grade your child is enrolled in during the 2019-2020 school year. We understand some students may thrive in a group older or younger than their designated peer group. However, our grade ranges are strict so that teaching artists can tailor their lesson plans and ensure the best possible classroom experience for all participants.
