Acting Classes Span Singing, Dancing, Acting, Props, Set & More

Of all the extracurriculars out there, theater is the one dream I have for all of my kids. I just love theater and getting to watch my kids on stage (or in the background on crew) is more exciting to me than any athletic event.

We love the community atmosphere that develops with each performance, with everyone working super hard to make something great together. And it’s one of those things that any kind of creative kid can be involved in. You can work on props, crew, costumes, set design, singing, dancing or acting.

Anything is possible with theater.

How Acting Classes for Kids Works

What Age Do Acting Classes Start?

Any school-age kid can delve into performing arts. Local theatre houses offer school-year programs and acting summer camps for all ages. Often these programs culminate in a stage performance where we can see all our kids’ hard work come to life.

Performing arts can include dance, singing and acting, so it’s a fun extracurricular to combine with other interests. Kids can take dance lessons AND theater classes, and they can work together!

Kids can also learn how to audition through local groups. Grand Rapids Civic Theatre just began offering audition workshops where you can learn how to ace auditions and what’s expected at them.
