Chrysalis offers play-based creative learning opportunities that are interactive and hands on, fostering healthy personal development in a vibrant, thriving culture.
Our experiences feature a period of classes/rehearsals (typically 6-8 weeks), in which our students are led through fun games and challenges that are specifically designed to help them to form healthy connections with each other and to naturally develop personally and artistically. As we go through that period, we develop a high-quality theatre show in which every student plays a part. We end the experience with a fully-staged performance for family, friends, and the local community.
Every activity is personalized for each student, allowing each of them to grow at a pace that is comfortable for them.
Each experience is limited to groups of 25 students or less. If we have a larger amount of signups, we'll split the students into equal size groups so that we can maintain a comfortable environment where students can feel like a family, while still allowing every student to participate equally.
Our programming is open to all experience levels, from total beginners to advanced students. Our students are generally ages 8-16. We mix all ages and experience levels together, as we have found that be incredibly special and effective. Students of different ages and backgrounds learn to work together, to support each other, to respect each other. The older and the younger alike all learn from each other. It's great preparation for real life, where they'll have to be able to interact healthily with people of all different ages and backgrounds.
Our ultimate goal is to help students come alive and shine their brightest, so they can shine on every stage they face in life.
