Class Experience

Through this seven-week series, students will use their imaginations to meet various characters from different stories.  Each week, a surprise guest will appear in our imaginary playground ready to explore with us. Students will be introduced to a new genre each class:  fantasy, fiction, mystery, nonfiction, and science fiction. Using their actors’ tools (body, voice, imagination, and face), as well as their favorite parts of the story, they will interact in fun and creative ways with the main character. If your child has ever wanted to meet Sofia the First, the marvelous Marvel superheroes, or journey to Ryan’s World, this is the class for them.

About Leaders by Choice

The mission of the Leaders By Choice - LBC is to provide youth with a safe, caring, and inspiring environment that offers both leadership and performing arts skills. Many of today's youth struggle with low self-esteem, self-acceptance, peer pressure, and limited communication skills. At Leaders by Choice, these concerns are addressed by introducing young people to performing arts and other creative outlets. We challenge students to learn how to effectively communicate while collaborating both on the stage and within the entire learning community. Our purpose is multifaceted. We aim to develop students' theater skills as well as their leadership skills, cultivating the artist and activist in each child. We also aim to guide each student toward responsible self-management of their own behavior as they engage in richly motivating and challenging leadership experiences.
