Join the REVOLT!
Rebellion is nigh in Matilda JR., a gleefully witty ode to the the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination! This is the story of a girl who dreams of a better life and the children she inspires. Join with Not Just Dance next year and root for the “revolting children” who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson.
Matilda has astonishing wit, intelligence… and special powers! She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils’ saving grace!
Packed with high-energy dance numbers and catchy songs, Matilda JR. is a joyous girl power romp.

Those accepted into the program will continue to be charged a monthly tuition amount through Jan, 2021. Please note that this class has a dance requirement. All students must be registered in dance or show proof of taking dance at another studio by Sept. 1st. If neither of those have happened, students will be automatically enrolled in a dance class that has openings and parents will be charged for the dance class along with the tuition for the Advanced Musical Theatre class. See the Tuition Rates page for examples.
Those not accepted into the program will be refunded any specific tuition paid towards the Advanced Musical Theatre class (only). Adjustments will be made to month tuition based on other registrations.
This is an advanced class for students serious about musical theatre. The class has a dance requirement (see information under Tuition above). In addition, we expect students to be enrolled in choir at school or taking private voice lessons.

This program is for serious students.
