Ages 9-12

Our tween programs help young actors to continue to build a solid foundation while also providing opportunities for more experienced young artists to dig deeper into more specialized topics. 

We use tried-and-true as well as innovative theatrical exercises to encourage creativity, build confidence, and foster ways to work together as a group. Tweens will learn to think outside the box and express themselves artistically in new and challenging ways.  All levels of experience welcome!

In addition to the classes listed below, check out our Craving Creativity here at Lyric Arts and our Super Hero Slam day camps at Urban Air Adventure Park in Coon Rapids—CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS
