Spring Classes 2022



Silliness encouraged when you’re at Creative Root! We offer classes for kids during the Fall, Winter, and Spring both online and in-person at the Theatre School at DePaul. Kids can let their imaginations soar as they learn valuable theatre skills. We provide a rotating selection of core classes that focus on everything from musical theatre to improv with occasional spotlight classes that focus on a specialized skill or type of theater-like stage combat or radio plays! We’re gonna move our bodies. We’re gonna use our imaginations. And we’re gonna get growing!

Sing from the Treetops!  Musical Theatre Workshop

Is there a musical theatre song you’ve always wanted to perform? Let’s take a deep dive into that dream role and develop the Passion, Power, and Precision required to bring your performance to life by acting the song instead of just singing it. Using character, emotion, and story in both song work and choreography, we will bring all of the fun of the musical theatre stage to your home. (Registration will open in early March.
