APAC OFFERS NEW CLASSES
Aloha Performing Arts Company announces two new classes, which will be taught by movement specialist and classically trained singer Wendy Buzby. The first is "Yogi Buds," an eight week introduction to yoga for ages 8 through 13. There are two sections: one will meet on Mondays, 3:45 to 4:30 p.m. and the second will meet on Thursdays in the same time frame. Both sections of "Yogi Buds" will meet in Damron Hall, APAC's annex, adjacent to the Aloha Theatre parking lot. Ms. Buzby's other class is "Singing Buds," an eight week introduction to singing for ages 8 through 13, with a Monday and a Thursday section, both meeting from 4:45 to 5:45 p.m., also at Damron Hall. Instruction begins either April 3 or 6, and tuition for any of Ms. Buzby's eight week classes is $80.
In addition, other APAC classes will be resuming in April. Jerry Tracy's "Tuesday Troupers" class for 8 through 12 year olds begins an eight week session on April 4, which runs through May 23. This class meets onstage at the Aloha Theatre, and focuses on performance skills such as projection, articulation, and characterization, and will culminate with a free public performance on the last class day. Tracy is assisted by Kira Kane, and the theme for this session is school and education. Tuition is $80.
"The Little Theatre Club," taught by Nicole Gour, begins a six week session April 6 through May 11. The class, for keiki ages 4 to 7, is an introduction to theatre through structured play and meets on stage at the Aloha Theatre Thursdays 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. The last meeting day will feature a free public performance. Tuition is $60.
