More on Online Classes

Led by our carefully curated faculty of professional artist educators, we’re offering online classes for ages 8 and up this spring! After a successful run of moving our in-person classes temporarily online this past fall/winter season, we are excited to do the same this season. 

Our teachers have taken online teaching workshops, including with organizers from Young People’s Theatre in Toronto. We’ve found that online classes have been easily accessible, given us new students from across the province, and they’ve been a whole lot of fun! We can’t wait to see returning students, and to welcome new students – from wherever you are! 

An example of a final online class performance  

Here are some clips from Acting & Story Creation for ages 9-12’s Final Performance! As you can see in this  video below, the online format offers some  unique opportunities for creativity and use of technology, keeping the magic and play involved in performance alive.

Parent Testimonials

 

My son attended in-person classes at Theatre SKAM for 2 years before the pandemic. It was his lifeline to being active, creative and social. With the lockdown, and the closure of most activities for kids, I was struggling to find outlets for my son who needs a little ‘extra’. 

With 2021, he was missing Theatre SKAM, so we signed up for a virtual session, not quite sure how he would do. He was apprehensive and said he would try one, while I worried about his attention and focus for the class. SO happy to report he absolutely loves it!! He is excited to join, and take part in the fun activities. To add to this, he’s forming new friendships with classmates and spends the rest of the evening, sharing all the creative stories that have inspired him.

Again, big Thank you!


Parent, Angie

We are all impressed with how you (and the kids) adapted to 2020 “live theatre” now online! My daughter had a fantastic time in the fall! You have amazing programs.

Parent, Cathy

I am so impressed with the class. My son just loves Vanessa and how she made each session an event to remember. I can see how his confidence is growing and he seems to be developing his own voice and sense of humour. Thank goodness for Theatre SKAM!!

Parent, Cait
