After School Classes

Fall 2019

Please note a few changes for the 2019/2020 school year:

Tuesday/Thursday Classes are held at Yellow Mat Yoga, 409 Mead Rd #4, Decatur, GA 30030.

Monday/Wednesday and Saturday Classes are held upstairs at Core Dance, 133 Sycamore, on the Square in Decatur.

Foundations is for younger students aged 6-11 with a focus on developing a deeper understanding of story-telling through movement, music and the art of vocal expression. Students receive instruction from our award-winning director Shell Ramirez. Staging concepts will be used regularly and students will be expected to attend most rehearsals. 

Apprentice Conservatory is an audition-based musical theatre class for students aged 10 to 18, who have performance experience and are ready to engage in student-led productions.  Students gain experience in all aspects of musical theatre production, and are encouraged to choreograph and direct together. We produce two full musicals per year, one in the fall and one in the spring. 

Please note that we follow the school calendar for the City Schools of Decatur, so do not have rehearsals on days they are closed, (unless otherwise noted).
