Classes for Youth on the 

Autism Spectrum

Seedling Theatre Company is excited to be offering a series of classes dedicated to kids on the Autism Spectrum. Currently, our schedule includes "Celebration", a vocal performance group. Fall 2017 schedule will include a drama class that will include a few typical peers to facilitate along with an experienced special education instructor. Plays and other teaching materials and techniques will be customized to each class and will be designed to support social skills and personal goals.

 

Youth must be at least 10 years old and able to follow directions with few prompts. Space is limited to keep classes to a manageable size and classes may be divided by age and/or ability level.

Please go to our Classes pages for dates, times, and pricing.

Why Theatre?

Typing “Theatre”, “Autism”, and “Research” into a search engine will yield an ever-increasing number of articles and studies addressing the benefits of introducing youth on the autism spectrum to the performing arts. Theatre allows children the opportunity to experience real-life situations and conflicts in a safe environment without the pressure to react “correctly”.  Working with scripts promotes analysis and consideration of characters’ motives and perspectives. Character development exercises ask the questions, “What would your face look like if you were disappointed?” or  “What did the actor do to tell the audience he was really stressed out?" The answers help actors give more believable performances, but to someone with ASD, it can be an epiphany.

Face coverings are required for everyone entering the building

With the exception of the Sprouts & Seedlings classes, & those with a medical exemption

Thank you for helping us keep Seedling a Safe place for all.

We are so excited to be partnering with the Vegas Theatre Hub’s Youth Improv Program for the 4th year to bring this awesome camp to our studio for our older students. Experienced instructors teach the basics of improvisation, giving students the skills they need to make up comedy scenes on the spot with no scripts. It's comedy without a net! This is a fantastic opportunity for students to have fun learning the nuts and bolts of an incredibly popular and rewarding art form. Students will learn the importance of taking care of the their fellow performers and working as a team, incorporating essential skills such as:

 

 

  • Listening

  • Agreement

  • What we mean when we say "yes, and…"

  • Working as an ensemble

  • Stage craft

  • Basic mime

  • Vocal expression

Someone special has given you...
