CLASSES

At Act Alive Academy we offer a Fall, Winter and Spring term each year.

Each term is an equal length and our Musical Theatre programs all culminate in a year end productions. All of our instructors are industry professionals who bring their many years of training to every class. 

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.

I want to live where soul meets body
And let the sun wrap it's arms around me
And bathe my skin in water cool and cleansing
And feel... feel what it's like to be me

Whether your child loves the spotlight or needs a little help to come out of their shell, they will have a blast exploring the magical world of singing, dancing and acting. 

In this intro to musical theatre class, kids will have the opportunity to make new friends and have their imaginations sparked while building their confidence and sense of self through creative play and character exploration. They will also love rehearsing a musical theatre song and dance to be filmed and sent to parents at the end of the term.

 

Students enrolled in our Spring term will also have the opportunity to perform in our Centre Stage production in June.

In our Perform term, students will finalize all character work and acting scenes,  and learn the remaining musical numbers.

When the lights go down and the curtains go up, the cast will have multiple opportunities to perform for the Squamish community at Eagle Eye Theatre, creating memories they are sure to treasure forever.
