Performance for Beginners
Sundays 9-10 AM

It’s finally here!!
For those beginning performers out there, these 8 weeks will give them the outlet they crave and at the same time strengthen their on stage confidence and joy.
In this class, we will play and learn performing basics so they will be above and beyond any shows or drama classes they choose to be in going forward.
Classes will include acting out popular stories and books we love with a short performance at the end of the 8 weeks.
About Christine deSimas:
Christine has been directing and performing in theater for over 30 years. A graduate of SUNY New Paltz with a Bachelors of Science degree in Musical Theater, she is thrilled to come back to her roots with teaching. Her passion for both performing and directing has been a deep part of her from a very early age performing as a kid in Brooklyn, NY. Christine’s decades of theater experience include NYC cabaret shows, acting, singing, cast recordings, showcases, improv, character study, theater history, directing, lighting, scene design, sound engineering, teaching at the renowned Count Basie Center for the Arts and mom-ing three young kids, two of which share her passion for theater. It is a thrill to be given the platform to share both these skills and passion with others and by using theater, show them how incredibly creative they are! Her mission is to use theater to help children own their voice, doubting less and trusting their own instincts, giving them greater confidence on-stage and off!
