How much does it cost?

Do I have to pay the tuition all at once, or do you have payment plans available?
At Drama Kids, we provide an effortless way to pay for your child’s tuition. Our monthly installment billing divides the yearly cost into equal payments throughout the school year, making it more convenient for you.
Are there any additional costs besides tuition?
To cover the costs of registration and administration, a nominal fee is charged per family annually. Additionally, Drama Kids requests students’ families to provide simple (and inexpensive) costumes and props for the Spring Showcase.
What do you do in each class?
Step into the Drama Kids world, where we kick off each class with a bang! First up, we have some super fun icebreakers that get our minds, bodies, and voices primed for action. Then, we dive into the speech segment, where our students sharpen their articulation, projection, and volume control. Our creative movement portion is where things start to get juicy. Here, students unleash their inner physical storytellers and master postures and body language. Next comes the main event, where students perform short, scripted, or improvised scenes that bring together their speech and movement skills with their unique creativity. Finally, we end each class on a high note with a high-energy concluding activity.
Is there a Spring and a Fall Session?
Our classes are full academic school year sessions that beginning in September and end at our Spring Showcase in May.
Do students put on a play at the end of the school year?
Starting in February, students start rehearsals for a Spring Showcase Presentation. This is a short, theatrical performance where students are given the chance to demonstrate the skills they’ve learned in class. Each student gets a character with lines to memorize and uses teamwork to rehearse in class and perform for parents at the end of the year.
Can I watch a class?
At Drama Kids, we value the comfort of all students attending our classes. With this in mind, we kindly request that parents do not observe classes. This will allow them to fully immerse themselves in the experience. We invite all families and friends to the Spring Showcase Presentation.
Will my student have the same teacher all year?
Yes. In most cases, Drama Kids teachers instruct their classes for the full academic year unless there are highly unusual circumstances.
