Rising Stars - The 60's (Gr. 3-7)
The Rising Stars summer performance experience has been a vital and exciting addition to our community education line-up for over 20 years! Quality instructors and experienced mentors will assure that 3rd-7th grade students will build skills for stage performance! Students will share the stage with other talented students in a singing, acting, and dancing extravaganza! Our theme this summer will be “The 60’s,” and will feature music, dance, and skits relating to that amazing decade. Performance will be on Friday, August 16, 6:00 pm.
