Performing Arts School
Registering for Spring!
Spring Semester at
Hub Performing Arts School is offered February 4 through May 9.
focus of these classes is on acting, singing and a bit of dance. The goal
is to develop the well rounded performer through learning performance
techniques, vocal skills, and musical theatre style dance. Classes are
offered for Kindergarten through high school. There are beginning and
advanced level classes. These classes will perform at the Talent Showcase
at the end of the semester and have the opportunity to compete at Showcase
Dance Competition in May.
- this class is for 6th through 12th graders who want to work on their
comedic talent. The teacher is from NEW YORK CITY! He is an actor and
a professional clown. Tech’s Impov Team, ALTERNATIVE FUELS, will
also be working with the class. If there's enough interest, we'll create
a young age class.
- this class, for all ages, is for those who would like to make a career
out of being a star. This class will focus on audition preparation, acting
in front of a camera, and creating a professional resume and headshot.
This class will have the opportunity to shoot a commercial. The teacher
for this class has worked with Broadway greats and has trained in New
York City! Those signing up for this class should realize that this class
will work hard and there will be less focus on fun.
- We are approaching dance in a new way this semester. We will prepare
students for musical auditions and train them in ballet, tap and jazz.
Four weeks will be spent on each discipline. There is a beginning level
for all age groups. Experienced dancers will audition for levels 2 or
our tiniest stars we will offer a class that has dance, singing and creative
movement. This is a great way to begin early with those little ones with
- these classes are for those performers who are most comfortable with
acting only. The class will have activities which help the actor to increase
the creativity which will include games and other fun activities. This
class will perform a short play at the talent showcase in May.
- At the end of each semester at Hub Performing Arts School, we give our
students a chance to show off what they have learned. Each class will
perform a selection that reflects the learning objective of that class.
Showcases are divided by age so that we don’t have a five hour long
show. Shows are a fun mixture of singing, acting and dancing. You will
be amazed at what your students have learned in 12 weeks!
We also offer classes
for adults at Hub Performing Arts School. If you used to be involved in
the arts and are missing the enjoyment you received, or you are a beginner
who believes you have some talent, we have classes for you.
- This class is a wonderful opportunity to get in shape or stay in shape.
It is great for everyone! We offer this class several times a week in
the mornings and the evenings so that you can find a time that works best
for you. The class works on a punch card system. You purchase a card for
$100 with 10 classes on the card. Attend class when it is convenient for
you, get your card punched and then purchase a new card when that one
is completed. Our promise for this class is: After 10 classes- feel a
difference, 20 classes- see a difference, 30 classes- a whole new body!
Look at our schedule to see when classes are offered.
VOICE LESSONS -
Have you always wanted to be a singer or want to improve your talent?
Voice lessons will teach you the skills, techniques and habits needed
for a singer. Classes are 30 minutes long, once a week. You may choose
to perform in our end of semester Talent Showcase.
- We offer private and group acting lessons. These classes are great for
those adults wanting to audition for some local plays, interested in theatre
as a career or for those business professionals who want to improve their
powerful presence in the workforce.
- This class spends four weeks each on ballet, tap and jazz. This is perfect
for the beginner who is interested in dance for performance or fitness
or for the adult who has been away from dance for a while. We also have
an advanced level for those over 18 who are serious about dance.
- This class is great for fitness and is also just a whole lot of FUN!
You can show off your skills on the dance floor or just impress your friends
or kids. Hip Hop is sweeping the nation! Our instructor is incredible!
