SSPA Education Programs
Each year, Sierra School of Performing Arts puts on camps and classes to develop and train aspiring actors and theater personnel. Our camps are designed for kids in grades 4 through 9, and offer electives ranging from improvisation to movement, auditioning techniques to musical theater. Classes cater to various age groups, from 6 years to adult. Each session concentrates on developing various skills and performance techniques, as discussed below.
Research demonstrates that the arts are vital to a well-rounded education. They promote critical thinking, enhance spatial and temporal perception, foster positive social skills, and provide powerful motivation for students to excel in school. Such education calls for students to process information verbally, aurally, kinesthetically—so that every child can succeed in the classroom and in life. Theater especially captures all of the above skills and learning styles in one art form! And it’s fun! We encourage you to consider giving your child the golden opportunity to develop confidence and social skills by signing them up for one of our classes or encouraging them to participate in a camp or one of our plays!
