Performance Troupe Entry-Level Classes

If your child LOVES to perform, wants to work hard each week to grow as a singer, dancer, actor and performer, and loves being on a team, then consider our Triple-Threat Performance Troupe Program.  We recommend trying a Combo class first as the commitment to the Performance Troupe is Sept-March.  BUT if you've seen these young performers on stage in our Community Musicals, as leads in their high school productions and centre stage in our All Kids' Musicals at the WMCA and that's what you want to do, then sign up for a Performance Troupe class! 

Jazz shoes will be required.  Costumes and festival entry fees will be invoiced.  (Entry into On the Stage is included in the registration fee; On The Stage workshop fees will be invoiced as they are mandatory for these students.)

  Mecca's Performance Troupe works as a team from fall to spring each year, learning hits from Broadway, entertaining stage dance with voice numbers and challening choral pieces.  Our instructors are leaders in the choral and musical theatre community who LOVE to share their knowledge, skills and talents with our students.
