B-Nerdz Performing Arts Program


OUR MISSION: TO IGNITE A LOVE FOR THE ARTS IN THE HEARTS OF EVERY STUDENT IN THE PROGRAM.
The Pure Performing Arts Program has been designed to boost each individual's self-poise, confidence, and performance in an encouraging, workshop-type environment. We do this by incorporating our CORE VALUES as a foundation to everything we teach, in our classes, performances, events, and productions. We focus on ALL facets of the ARTS offering various Styles of Dance and Theatre Training which encompasses, Voice & Body, Theatre & Performance Technique, Stretching & Strengthening, Anatomy, Rhythm & Beat. This program provides all the training skills needed for your child to become a well-rounded performer. This year we have some great things planned and an action-packed season ahead.
