Acting classes teach students how to cry on command—a skill that's especially useful when stopped by a traffic cop or when pretending to whittle an onion. Put on a winning performance with today's Groupon: for $74, you get a three-month performing-arts class at Prodigy Kids Performing Arts in Encinitas (a $204 value).
The teachers at Prodigy Kids Performing Arts draw upon extensive on-stage experience to tutor young'uns in a schedule of classes focused on singing, acting, and dancing. Voice courses introduce small fry to singing basics, including music reading, vocal technique, and how to shatter crystal without hosting indoor homerun derbies. The Musical Theater class delves into advanced study of the American art form, building a repertoire of skills that will aid them in Broadway debuts and undercover ops in the land of Oz. Acting sessions focus on the emoting skills required in stage life, with games, improv, and monologues to help develop comfort reacting and performing before audiences. All classes meet once each week in intimate groups of 12 or fewer students, and age requirements differ.
While the registration fee is waived for the three months included in today's Groupon, a one-time $20 registration fee will be required for additional instruction.
