Foundations After School

At DCP, your kids will have loads of fun in a safe environment while learning life skills through theatre: Teamwork, Problem Solving, Communication, Focus, Empathy, Respect, Cultural Awareness, Self-Confidence, and Creative Thinking.

Foundations After School offers structured theatre-based activities combined with creative free play, both indoors and at our outdoor stage, as well as homework time, snack time and water breaks.  Each day of the week, we focus on a different aspect of theatre with a one hour activity, from behind the scenes to on the stage, and everything in between! Your children can explore story-telling and acting, through movement, music and the art of vocal expression; or can create the scene with set building and costume design; or perform musical theatre.

Class size limited to 20 students per day, grades K-5.
