Summer Classes - 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!

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.
