The Warlick YMCA, 2221 Robinwood Rd., Gastonia, will be offering classes to youth ages 7 to 17 who are interested in developing the craft of acting and performance. Young performers learn theatre concepts and vocabulary while building confidence and self-esteem through theatre classes. Each class offers students an opportunity to join a supportive and talented arts community where every child is given a chance to shine. Classes introduce students to all aspects of theater from scripts and scenes to music and dancing. Theater at the Y allows both new and experienced actors an outlet for their creative juices.  For more information, please contact Rachel at [email protected]
