START YOUR CREATIVE JOURNEY
Da Vinci Academy is a place that fuels creativity, ignites minds, and provides inspiration. Are you ready to begin your creative journey?
ACTING – Drama (ages 7-11)
Acting is fun! It all starts with pretending. Pretend that you are afraid or angry, tough or sad. Become a monster, the queen of England or a policeman. Fight with a lion, own a hair salon or win the lottery.
Every week the kids create unique situations, characters and scenes. During the lessons they also learn that acting is more than pretending; there is a lot involved. How do you use your voice and your body? How do you move? How do you make a scene exciting or just moving? You will learn how to grab the attention of the audience, how you can use the space and how you can tell one story in different ways.
ACTING – Young Actors Club (ages 13-17)
The Young Actors Club is an acting class for teens who are serious about acting.
Learn how to unlock your imagination and emotions, be honest, truthful, and natural in a scene, bring the script and characters to life. In other words, to become the best actor you can be!
Once a year, you get the opportunity to both act on the stage (theatre), and become an actor in a short film.
DANCE – Ballet (ages 5-12)
Ballet is the basis of all dance technique. We make learning ballet fun for all age groups. Younger students learn the basics, including stretching, locomotor skills, rhythm and timing, and proper positions of the feet and arms, with creative exploration. As ballet students progress, the emphasis is on basic discipline for ballet skills with concentration on barre exercises, center work, adagio, allegro and both short and long ballet combinations set to classical music.
Each year (around April), students get to perform on stage in our annual show at Cas di Cultura.
DANCE – Jazz Funk (ages 8-17)
Jazz Funk, also called street-jazz, is an energetic and dynamic hybrid dance form.
Jazz Funk is fierce, is cute, is powerful, is sensual and is a diva-like dance style. It takes elements from Hip Hop, Jazz, and Waacking. This genre of dance gives you the chance to release sassiness and dance fiercely.
Each year (around April), students get to show off their skills in our annual dance performance at Cas di Cultura.
DANCE – Street Dance (ages 8-12)
Street dance is a blend of different dance styles including Hip-Hop.
In our street dance classes, you will learn different types of grooves, rhythms and cool moves like the ones performed by backing dancers in music videos or even by major artists themselves like Justin Timberlake, Jason Derulo and Usher.
It is a great, fun, funky and energetic class!
Each year (around April), our students get to show off their skills in our annual dance performance at Cas di Cultura.
MUSIC – Piano (ages 5-17)
Learning to play the piano musically requires much more than just learning to play the right notes. It requires careful and proper development of hands, ears, mind and heart.
The piano is one of the most versatile instruments out there and one of the most beautiful sounding.
