PERFORMING ARTS & YOGA
Act Alive Academy is a performing arts and yoga studio offering classes for youth on the traditional and unceded territory of Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) in what is now known as Squamish BC.
Our mission is to offer classes, camps and birthday parties which are a safe space for kids and teens to be themselves while singing, dancing and acting. The kids will exercise their bodies and minds, making connections and having fun.
Our classes give students the chance to build confidence, explore their creative sides and develop new skills. Students will learn teamwork and co-operation, time management and organizational skills, self discipline, self love, body awareness, the ability to think on their feet, communication skills, resilience and to open their minds to new ideas and possibilities.
We offer various exciting performance opportunities throughout the year, highlighted by our year-end main stage production at Squamish’s Eagle Eye Theatre.
We believe in giving back to our community and offer chances for our students to lift and be lifted through outreach, volunteerism and scholarships.
Our Academy is a safe-space where children come to be inspired creatively and to grow both as people and performers.
Act Alive makes it fun, inclusive and safe for kids of all ages to be themselves and bring out their passion/talents.As a mom I will forever be grateful for Act Alive, every teacher treated my daughter like their own, we feel like we are part of a family and I am always so impressed with each teacher's dedication to make it about the kids.
Yoga & Musical Theater
Though we help develop very skilled performers and yogis, we value process and aim to make the experience of learning fun and inspiring as students gain new skills and strengthen existing ones.
ProD Day Camps
Both our day and week-long camps will include training in singing, dancing, acting and yoga and finish with either a live or filmed performance.
Leila had a wonderful time at camp and she has not stopped asking when she was going back.
My daughter started with Act Alive in late fall of 2018, I've seen her confidence flourish and her love for the arts grow. Act Alive definitely brought out her passion for dance, singing, acting and yoga!
I love everything that Jessica and the Act Alive team has to offer our children, and our community. Thank you for your amazing work!
