Winter Acting Classes for ages 12-17

Winter Acting Classes in Calgary for Youth/Teens Ages 12-17

 As each season sets the stage for the next; nature is very skilled and accepting of the “what is” and using it to unfold the “what can be.” Winter is the season of introversion and contemplation, as it brings many changes to the world, and provides the setting for renewal.

May this season bring exciting new learning experiences that incite laughter and an eagerness to grow. "Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face." Victor Hugo

This winter at Theatre A Go-Go, it’s all about the laughter, believing in yourself, and the Magical World of William Shakespeare. We’re proud to present our fun line up of Acting Classes. Join us, meet new friends and have fun while improving physical, emotional and verbal literacy!
