  • Kidz Krew is at it again with a workshop beginning November 28 at 4:00 p.m. The Creative Arts Center will be offering this 3-week workshop for $50 and the class runs each Tuesday and Thursday from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. for three weeks. A wide variety of skills will be covered in this comprehensive workshop, including singing, dancing, improv, word games, projection skills and more! Theater classes teach responsibility, how to work as a team, and give children a sense of self-confidence. The ability to speak in front of a group is also a valuable skill that generally improves with theater classes.
