"Inspiration Jr. is a program that prepares children ages 6-12 for a future in the performing arts. It is geared to get children ready to perform in "Inspiration Performing Troupe" as well as any other performing opportunity they may have in their future. Each class will include a short lesson that teaches them different essential performing skills including audition techniques, improv, theater terminology, and dance technique. We will also play games and rehearse musical numbers for our final recitals. The program will be run by the founder and director of "Inspiration Performing Troupe," Emily Garven and will be assisted by a different member of the "Inspiration Troupe" each week.
The class will run on Saturdays for either one or two hour "rehearsals." Please refer to the schedule below for specific dates and times. While this program is a class, we will treat it as a real show and all class meetings will be referred to as "rehearsals." There will be two final recitals for "Inspiration Jr." One at Norfolk Community Day and another at the Stadium Theatre in Rhode Island. At these performances, the students will showcase all of the skills they have learned as well as 3-4 musical numbers that include singing, dancing, and acting.
Inspiration Jr. is $200.00 for the entire program which includes 10 hours of class instruction and rehearsals, an "Inspiration Jr." uniform, two recitals that include the use of a professional sound system, and the opportunity to work with members of "Inspiration Performing Troupe" each week. Any questions regarding "Inspiration Jr." can be sent to us through our "Contact Us" page!
