Core Programs

We call these programs ‘core’ because they lie at the very heart of what we strive for at NOVA: empowering youth to become theatre artists. The skills that make a good theatre artist are the ones that help develop great human beings. Learning to express using your voice and body helps an actor succeed – and develops empathy as you see the world from someone else’s perspective. Learning ensemble skills for the stage is important to a good play – and helps you learn to get along in the world. Youth involved in theatre make a great community!
