Virtual Youth Classes

Ignite your child’s creative voice… online! Our virtual programs give students the opportunity to continue their learning online, work independently and collaboratively, and explore many unique genres of storytelling and performance beyond the stage. American Stage provides quality theatre training in a positive and inspiring environment that gives young people the tools to be fearless, focused, and flexible. Studying theatre arts does not only help students become accomplished and confident performers, it also empowers creative, intellectual, and emotional growth. All experience levels are welcome!

Currently all onsite performances and classes are paused until further notice. The health and safety of our community are of the utmost importance and we appreciate your understanding and patience until we are able to safely schedule onsite programs again. #WeWillReturn.

“It’s so cool that I can still connect with my friends and create art virtually!”
