performance is an adventure...
...and education is an art.

“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.”
Arts Detroit is happy to offer a number of group classes for students of all ages.
Group classes run separately from our regular private lesson schedule. Spring 2018 runs March 5 through May 25 (no classes the week of April 2nd for Spring Break) for a total of 11 classes.
Enchanted Theatre (Ages 3-7)
Let your little one take center stage as they tell some of their favourite stories and fairytales. We will help developing performers (and those who aren’t so sure they’re ready for the spotlight) develop confidence as well as learn performing etiquette and basic stage technique through simplified improv and storytelling. Great for little princesses AND princes! We require a parent or guardian stay with their child during class each week. Students will perform for parents at the last class.
Enchanted Theatre (Ages 3-4) meets Tuesdays 4-4:30pm | Cost: $65
Enchanted Theatre (Ages 5-7) meets Thursdays 4:30-5:15pm | Cost: $95
Acting Essentials (Ages 8+)
This class focuses on acting techniques in a way which is easy and fun. Students will begin with a short warm up and theatre games, then rotate between work on improv, cold reading, and scene work. The goal of the class will be to give students a better sense of who they are as an artist and the confidence to communicate as an actor while on stage or during auditions.
Acting Essentials (Ages 8-12) meets Thursdays 5:15-6pm | Cost: $125
Acting Essentials (Ages 13+) meets Wednesdays 5-6pm | Cost: $125
Group Vocal (Ages 8+)
Students who aren’t quite ready or can’t yet commit to taking private lessons have the chance to sing at an age appropriate level. Learn proper breathing techniques, sight singing, and healthy vocal habits for different styles (classical, musical theatre, and pop).
Group Voice (Ages 8-12) meets Thursdays 6-7pm | Cost: $125
Group Voice (Ages 13+) meets Wednesdays 4-5pm | Cost: $125
Looking for Workshops?
Broadway Babies / Singing Stars (Ages 3-7)
We will focus on singing, storytelling, and movement. We will make fun and entertaining Broadway songs come alive that showcase your tiny performers! A parent or guardian must attend class with their child each week. Students will perform in our Spring Recital (May 19 or 20).
Broadway Babies (Ages 3-4) meets Thursdays 4-4:30pm | Cost: $65
Singing Stars (Ages 5-7) meets Tuesdays 4:30-5pm | Cost: $65
Childrens Theatre (Ages 3-7)
A hybrid of education and performance, students will learn performance basics while preparing to put on a show! Through classic stories (and maybe even some songs, too!), students will create a 30 minute performance from what they’ve learned. We require a parent or guardian stay with their child during class each week. The last class date will be a showcase performance where students will perform longer selected scenes for parents.
Childrens Theatre meets Saturdays 9:30-11am | Cost: $100
Acting for Musical Theatre (Ages 8+)
In a musical, the reason we sing is because the words are too big to be spoken. Step up your game as a musical theatre performer through song interpretation and how to approach musical numbers as an actor. Strip down solo and group songs as well as short MT scenes and use character and script study to understand what a character’s motivations are and how to communicate the action of the text on the page.
Acting for MT (Ages 8-12) meets Tuesdays 6-7pm | Cost: $125
Acting for MT (Ages 13+) meets Mondays 4-5pm | Cost: $125
Musical Theatre Performance (8+)
Understand performance skills needed while singing, dancing, and acting through age appripriate songs and scenes. Students will learn selections from classic and contemporary musicals, break down their intentions, and understand how to perform them. This class will strengethen students’ understance of overall performance skills in a musical, boost confidence for auditions, and create more authentic characters.
MT Performance (Ages 8-12) meets Tuesdays 5-6pm | Cost: $125
MT Performance (Ages 13+) meets Mondays 5-6:30pm | Cost: $150

Regarding inclement weather: As roads are usually cleared by the afternoon when lessons occur, Arts Detroit very rarely closes for bad weather. If the school districts close for inclement weather, do not assume that we are closed as well. In the event of inclement weather preventing a group class from running, that class will be cancelled without makeup under the premise of an ‘act of God.’ We will contact you via email or text by 1pm with weather related closings.
