CLASSES FOR PRE-K TO 5th GRADE

SPARC’s innovative teaching approach brings out the best in our students! We celebrate each child’s unique gifts and talents, meeting them where they are and helping them achieve their personal goals.

SPARC offers training classes and audition-based performance opportunities for young theatre artists in the fall, winter/spring, and summer.

FINAL SHOWCASE Our spring semester will conclude with a final showcase performance at the Libby S. Gottwald Playhouse at the Dominion Arts Center. Students will be able to say that they’ve performed on the same stage as many of Richmond’s most popular professional actors!
