Welcome to Studio Sharise Creative and Performing Arts Drama Department! The purpose of our Drama Department is to incorporate professional theater and acting skills in a fun and safe environment. Skills that will help students not only feel successful for the stage or screen, but for life. Students will gain confidence and self-esteem, learn how to work independently, and how to problem solve as part of a team! Kids of all ages love drama!
Students may have a share day, which is an opportunity for students to show off their classwork for family and friends in a low-pressure, informal presentation as well as have the opportunity to perform in our end of year Celebration Performance. Students also enrolled in our Young Performers Program will have the opportunity to perform in our formal productions.
Though we use a student's age/grade as a guideline, it is not uncommon for students of varying ages to work together in classes, on projects, in plays, or in show routines. Students may also advance based on individual goals, ability, and readiness - not necessarily by age.
Because theatre is a team effort and we "learn by doing", attendance, punctuality, and active participation in classes is very important. Students must be able to rely on each other to be in class and/or rehearsals and to come prepared. Classes are progressive and are designed to be taken year-long
