Spindrift School of Performing Arts offers leveled classes in Musical Theatre and Improvisation to students ages 5 – 18. In addition, we offer Performance classes throughout the year that culminate in a staged production, from musical theatre shows to comedic or dramatic work. In Spindrift’s leveled classes, students work toward discipline specific benchmarks and receive a Progress Certificate at the end of each session with instructor feedback and personalized recommendations for next steps in training.
