CLASSES 

Calling all actors! At Black Dog, kids can express themselves through acting & improv activities that promote personal expression and social interaction in a welcoming and friendly environment. Our classes are appropriate for beginners hoping to improve their confidence and public speaking skills as well as experienced actors looking to practice their craft and grow as performers. 

Our curriculum changes with each session so each class brings new games, scenes, monologues, and experiences. Classes are typically offered in eight-week sessions throughout the school year. Our Fall Session will be posted in early August.
