This group is all about providing space for youth to connect, create, and grow together.
We develop friendships, play crazy games, learn about acting, create our own film projects, and so much more!
Something that makes our club unique is that the kids are in the driver’s seat. They get to decide what characters they want to play and then THEY build their stories and write their own scenes.
Our theatre club is a ton of fun!
Musical Theatre Classes
The focus of this club is for youth to connect with peers in a way that builds confidence and encourages personal expression.
We focus on the three components of musical theatre which are voice, movement, and acting through high-energy games and activities. Every week our instructor and vocal coach will introduce the group to different performance skills and components of musical theatre.
No experience is required!
Our teaching philosophy is geared towards instilling growth mindsets in our students. A growth mindset encourages effort, progress, hard work, and persistence rather that talent or perfection. There are no solo-superstars in our classrooms! We believe that the process of creating something together is rich with opportunities for growth.
Making an Impact
Our instructors are committed to connect, create, and grow with our students! We are committed to continuing classes in accordance with provincial health and safety guidelines which means that we are ready to facilitate these classes either in person or online.
from the kids
When I was a child I attended three different New West Theatre camps over the years. Acting has always been a passion of mine since I was young and so my grandmother signed me up for the camps when we could. While in these camps, I learned many acting skills such as timing, line delivery, communication, quick thinking and creativity(from improve), and how to put on a production with a team.
Being apart of these camps was incredibly beneficial as I’ve always wanted to pursue acting and I’ve since been accepted to the university of Lethbridge for fine arts performance. However, I believe that attending these camps would be beneficial to everyone, not just those with acting aspirations, as it helps build self confidence and the ability to work with others as a team. I am very grateful for the opportunities New West Theatre has provided for me along my acting journey and career.
Being involved with New West Theatre helped me build stronger connections with kids who share similar interests. Having pre-existing relationships with other children helped me pursue friendships with these same children later on, because we were able to draw upon our experiences at camp together.
New West Theatre camps also helped me to be creative. No idea was too big in these camps. Everyone’s voice was heard and listened to, and I was encouraged to be myself and try new things. These camps motivate everyone to be a little silly, and embrace who they are and the way they think. Being myself and letting my creativity guide me is something I still strive for as an artist. Letting children think for themselves and follow their unique imaginations is absolutely fundamental for their journey into trusting their work as an artist, and more generally as a person.
I was very impressed with all that you were able to do given the circumstasnces surrounding COVID. I felt very confident sending my child to camp every day. They loved their experience. Thank you so much!
My child didn’t want to come home, she loved it so much!
My child loved the variety of the camp. She enjoyed the crafts and making scenes and creating their own plays and getting to choose who you can be as a character.
