Share in your child’s first drama school experience with our introductory classes for kids in Pre-School. Parents, grandparents and caretakers join in the fun to create stories together.
ARDEN KIDS' CREW – Grades Pre-K-Grade 5
If your children love the stage, want to kick their shyness or just adore a good story – our classes are for them. Classes develop your child’s self-confidence as well as speaking, problem-solving and listening skills, but your kids will be having too much fun to notice.
ARDEN TEEN COMPANY – Grades 6-12
You have the passion, now develop the skills. Arden Drama School’s Teen Company classes provide you the opportunity to study with Philadelphia’s top theatre artists. We offer six-week classes and one day workshops in Acting, Musical Theatre, Improv, and Design.
Class offerings subject to change or cancellation.
The Arden is a safe place for kids and teens!
A recent study conducted by Dr. James Catterall, Professor at the UCLA Graduate School of Education & Information Studies, finds that students involved in the arts watch less TV and display more tolerant behavior toward different racial groups than students with similar profiles who are not involved in the arts. By involving your child in the theatre arts, you are opening up a world of personal and artistic experiences, enhancing their love of literature and reading, and offering them a positive outlet to understand the world around them.
