Performing Arts

Performing Arts is entering its second year here at Solomon. In this class we will be learning about and experiencing: acting, dancing, playing music, singing, body movement, voice, expressing our emotions & creativity, writing scenes, staging, lighting, producing, directing, and so much more. I want this class to help your child express themselves, and dig deeper into their creativity and confidence.
 
I am so excited to see all the stupendous students for this 2020-2021 SY!
