The Company Classes offer homeschool students ages eleven and up rigorous instruction and training in acting, singing, and dancing (the "Triple Threat"), with the end goal of performing. Performance opportunities include competing in CITA's Fall Theatre Competition, a winter vocal recital, and a spring performance.
The first 10 weeks of the program are devoted to preparing the students to compete at CITA (Christians in Theatre Arts). The 2nd 10 weeks focus on growing the students in every aspect of the Triple Threat. Our final 10 weeks are dedicated to preparing for our spring performance. Classes/rehearsals are held at Havilah Dance Company. Jr. Company meets on Mondays from 10am - 1:45 pm;
Sr. Company meets on Thursdays from 9 am-12:45 pm.

For our Junior Company classes, we use theater games and exercises to build acting skills.
With our Senior Company, we use the renowned Meisner Technique, which places a large emphasis on acting in the moment and reacting to your partner.
Both companies acquire singing skills through classical vocal literature and choral singing.
Additionally, each student sings in front of their class each week in a master class environment.
Students in both companies are exposed to classical dance styles including ballet, tap, and jazz to emphasize form, while simultaneously learning original choreography from iconic Broadway musicals.
