Event Navigation

We are thrilled to announce Palace Academy of the Arts classes will resume on Monday, July 6 at the theatre.

Kicking off the summer program will be daily 2-hour mini-workshops where students are immersed in the three stage performance essentials: singing, dance & movement, and acting. Classes will meet from 9am to 11am daily for students age 7 to 15. When possible, classes will be broken into appropriate age groups. Class sizes are limited. No more than 9 students will be assigned to a room.
Each class will be led by experienced instructors: Kristi Wink (Dance & Movement), Jami Rawlins (Vocals), and Emily Yaksic (Acting).

Adding to the fun, instructors will creatively incorporate a daily theme into their lessons (see list below). Students are encouraged to come dressed according to theme of the day!


Each workshop is $25 per student per day or $100 for the full week.
