In the Little Luna program, young performers discover the creative elements of drama through a basis in story-telling.

This class is an expanded version of our former "Song and Dance" class. Students will still get plenty of opportunity to sing and dance, but will use music, sound, movement and most importantly, their imagination, to create characters and stories. As students journey through different devised settings and musical adventures as various characters, they will learn to work together to problem-solve and to control their own narrative.

Schedule and Instructors are subject to change. At Luna we want to bring you the highest quality of instruction so our teachers are all working professionals. The downside to this is that they are in demand, and sometimes they get jobs that conflict with our classes. If there is a change in instructor for a class, we will do our best to notify parents ahead of time.
