Greenbrier Valley Theatre (GVT) is proud to announce the schedule for the 2018 fall semester After-School classes: GVTots I (Grade K-1) and II (Grade 2-3), GVTweens (Grade 4-5), GVTeens I (Grade 6-8) and II (Grade 9-12) and the year-long Conservatory (Grade 8-12, by audition).
Students who participate in GVT’s Education Program experience the joy of learning acting styles, collaboration and improvisation. They are able to strengthen their individuality, while participating in group activities, whether through intensive year-long study or one semester at a time. One GVTeen excited to get back to the theatre and continue with the fun is Bogi Szalai.
“I love being at GVT! The After-School Program gives me a chance to be myself. My favorite part of the class is improvisation,” said the long-time student. “The classes help me to communicate better with kids at school. It also boosted my self-confidence. I can’t wait for the Fall classes to start.”
Parents can also appreciate the success of the Education Program, mainly because they can see the results of the after-school classes both on and off-stage. Bogi’s mother, Monika, has noticed a boost in her self-confidence and communication with each passing semester.
“The educational program’s staff is extraordinary. They embrace each child’s uniqueness and nurture their talent,” said the proud GVTeen parent.
