Weekly Classes: ShiningStars enriches your current curriculum with classes by professionally trained theater coaches. Classes will be set into your schedule at your convenience regarding day and time. ShiningStars follows a set developmental appropriate curriculum that focuses on bravery, creativity, and communication. Curriculum will focus on presentation of performance, speech articulation and projection, channeling emotional outlets, and how to communicate directly with groups, individuals, adults, and peers differently. Even your most shy students will find a new found confidence that will prepare them for school on top of their traditional academic environment.
Our curriculum will prepare any student for drama based play for school. Odyssey of the Mind, School Show Choir, Drama Clubs, and Tropican Speeches are among the few school programs that we can help prepare the children for.
Plays: Parents will love that there are 3 plays a year to see the progress of their children's extra curriculars. Costs for the show including costume, set, tickets, programs, and fun are included in the monthly fees. Parents will not have to worry about added financial responsibility with the shows.
Classes: ShiningStars is best done inside. It takes a generally small safe area, preferrably carpeted. Students will be using levels to jump, crawl, and turn. Most classrooms are equipped with a "circle time" carpet area, and that space serves most exercises just fine. The bigger the class, the bigger the space. Medium to large classrooms, lunchrooms, gymnasiums and outdoor playgrounds. We provide and use minimal props for classes.
Plays: We will need a generally large space to set parents either on the floor or in chairs and a space for a make shift stage. We provide the set and backdrop as well as a center aisle kids will walk down for an awesome photo everyone will enjoy. The plays are only 10 minutes long with the total time needed no longer than a half an hour. Your coach and director will meet to pick the best space, time, and date for your school to host their show. We will never intentionally inconvenience you and welcome you to use photos and videos for your marketing purposes.
Parents and ShiningStars are in direct contact. We provide a registration box or folder (depending on your preference). Schools have no responsibility for collecting money or forms, they will be placed in the provided folder or box and coaches will pick up before classes each week.
Parents also have the option and are encouraged to conduct all transactions online and automatically. We can provide a photoboard, posters, social media advertisements, email templates, and flyers to advertise ShiningStars Charlotte to your families.
