    Musical Theater Classes

    For students who are not ready for the stage, Batavia Studios offers separate acting, improv and musical theater dance classes.

    Acting and Improv

    Ages 10+

     
    Improvisation can change your life in so many ways, in school, and your personal life. Learn to jumpstart your creativity as you master stepping outside the box and learn to know no fear. The skills you master will help your presentation skills, overcome your fear of public speaking, enhance your socialization skills and so much more.

    This is a great class for all adults and children of all ages who want to build confidence and quick-thinking skills. For this class, you do not have to have any performance experience. Those that are new to improv and those that have some experience will love this improv basics class.

    Musical Theater Dance Sessions

    Ages 10+

    These sessions are a 30-minute long crash-course once a week for four weeks that teaches the basics of dancing in musical theatre. We will learn and practice performance elements to these steps as well to prepare you for the stage!
