About Our Theater
Our theatre was organized 14 years ago - September 1, 2005.
January 6, 2006- We celebrate our birthday with the First performance of “Snow Queen”!
Since then, every 4-5 months we show our performances to our Chicago Viewers!
Our theater is based on European, Russian Speaking base plus American education extra curriculum bases. We teach children and adults dancing, singing, theatrical movement and speech. We enhance and bring out the best qualities of the children and adults.
What do classes in our theater give? And who needs them?
1. If your child is shy...
In a few months he/she will be active, no longer afraid of the public and will learn to own himself/herself.
2. If your child is very active...
from the first lessons you will feel that the child has become more diligent, attentive, responsible, calm.
3. If your child is loosing Russian...
Communication in the classroom is in Russian language ONLY which will help the child to learn the language, plus-vocabulary!
4. If your child is not developed hearing, voice, speech...
Our activities are wonderful to help with vocal, choral singing, stage speech.
5. If your child can not dance...
Our dance and stage movement lessons will help to relax, teach you how to move with music and dance.
6. If your child loves to sing, dance, play "theatre"!
We will help your child to reveal his/her talent! Who knows, maybe, your child becomes a bright Hollywood star!
Everything I wrote above is not just a word... Believe my experience with children, and this is almost 45 years!
My program is developed on the basis of higher educational institutions.
All my skills and all my extensive experience I give to small actors! And the kids never let me down. All our performances were above and beyond our audiences expectations.
Our school employs exceptionally qualified and experienced teachers who are able to become not just coaches, but also become great friends and mentors for your children!!!
There is a waiting room for you with comfortable furniture and pleasant interior.
