PORT JEFF'S BLACK BOX THEATER SPACE AND PERFORMING ARTS STUDIO
We know that creative play develops social skills. We see it every day in our students as they grow their communication, cooperation and leadership skills. We specialize in developing these creative abilities in your child, in a very non-threatening way. We are process-oriented, not performance oriented. We are developing mature kids by unleashing your child’s creativity in a safe haven. We know these children because we’ve been doing it for over 20 years. Classes are small so that no child is left in the background. They all are able to learn to shine, and share their achievements with their fellow students. Students often visit us later on in their lives to thank us. They choose diverse careers – some become theater students or professionals – acting, commercials, costumes, set design, but many continue on to all the other possible fields of study and employment. All have benefited from the spirit of discovery that PAS helped nurture.
We develop artists and promote live performance. We provide a nurturing environment where artists can spread their wings and explore the world of performing arts with experienced professionals. Whether you want to be a professional in the field or you want to feel more comfortable in front of an audience, our aim is to provide you with the skills necessary to achieve your goals. We are a process-oriented theater school providing voice, acting, and musical theater classes to children and adults.
Classes are small to ensure individual attention, and process-oriented, allowing students to truly learn, master, and enjoy a variety of performing arts skills. You will have an opportunity to perform in front of a live audience at the end of each class.
We are proud and honored to be able to provide a creative haven in which to learn, explore and experience the performing arts. We enjoy sharing our experience with you and look forward to the journey!
