Summer Classes - 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. Students will collaborate with their fellow students in an open and encouraging environment, building deeper understandings of the theatrical process. Friends and family are invited to join us for a workshop performance at the end of the week showcasing what the students have learned and created. These classes are a fun and exciting way to explore your favorite theatrical material, and expand your mastery of storytelling!

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.
