Upcoming Studio Sessions

There’s a reason we here at The Studio don’t call them “classes.” Classes are boring.  ? Studio Sessions are 5, 6, or 8-week “sessions” geared toward a specific skill, theme, or group. Using unforgettably interactive teaching, these Sessions have kids buzzing for days about what they’ve done and what they’ve learned. Studio Sessions truly embody our mission…excellence while having fun. We are thrilled to add a number of excellent Studio Sessions this Fall, which will challenge kids to stretch their creative wings in the areas of music, acting & theatre. These 5 & 6-week “blocks” are perfect to try things out and see how you like it! Read on to find out how you can get involved!
