Harlem School of the Arts Theatre offers a wide ranging menu of classes led by working professionals. Classes are offered for ages 3 through adult, and there are offerings for all levels of interest, from the curious beginner through the young professional. Our more advanced theatrical work emphasizes performance based training in Musical Theatre, Physical Theatre/Improvisation and Ensemble work. Performance opportunities exist for all students through participation in our main stage season, open classes and special presentations. Reflecting recent technical upgrades in our theatre we will be offering new classes in lighting and scenic design and sound design.
The study of theatre and acting provides multi-faceted benefits in improving speech, critical thinking, and confidence in public situations. Whether you are exploring theatre for the first time as a hobby or preparing for professional schools and work, HSA Theatre has something to offer you.
