The Stage School is thrilled to announce our partnership with the Oakbrook Terrace Park District! At The Stage School, we provide quality part-time training in the performing arts for children between the ages of four to twelve. In our classes and camps, students will develop the core fundamentals of acting, singing, and dance. Our classes consist of a variety of fun and engaging activities which help kids succeed both on and off the stage.

Studies show that kids who attend activities such as classes in musical theater have increased confidence, poise, and discipline. Not only are these classes for children fun, but they develop essential life skills. We provide the right combination of learning and performing, with opportunities for students of all ages and experience levels.

We are proud to provide the most fun acting classes, dance classes, singing classes, and summer camps for kids in Oakbrook Terrace, IL.
