Our favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life this summer at FineLine Theatre Arts in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

From the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos and guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Horton faces many hardships but, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.

Join us this summer at FineLine’s Broadway Bootcamp to witness the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community challenged and emerge triumphantly.

At FineLine’s Broadway Bootcamp every child is an actor, every child is a singer, and every child is a dancer! Broadway Bootcamp is directed and supervised by Tony Award winning actor, director, and choreographer Scott Wise. Pulling from his vast experience teaching three year olds up to college performers, Scott brings professionalism, an emphasis on strong education, and simple joyous fun to all students involved. Music, vocal performance, acting, and dance are incorporated into every students daily routine. Students also get involved with set construction, costume building and make up design.

Join us for two weeks of intensive dance training!

Our summer intensive is a preprofessional program focusing on the fundamentals of ballet, modern, jazz and contemporary dance with a chance to experience hip hop, variations and repertoire. We focus on the whole dancer; beyond technique, we’re interested in pushing dancers to reach their fullest potential. Students will be trained in musicality and phrasing through choreography. Classes are leveled by skill and age, so students receive individual attention. The days are packed with learning technique as well as choreography.  Each week culminates in an informal showing for family and friends.

This year, the FineLine Dance Intensive will be broken up into 4 sessions: 2 ballet sessions and 2 contemporary sessions. Each dancer can mix and match to meet their individual schedules and interests. Below is a guideline for our current FineLine students:

Pre Professional Program: Must take at least 3 sessions **Ages 13 and up**
Entering Ballet Level 4: We recommend at least 2 sessions **Ages 12 and up**
Entering Ballet Level 3: We recommend at least 1 session **Ages 10 and up**

The Ballet Sessions will run from 9am to 12:30pm Monday to Friday

The Contemporary Sessions will run from 1:30-5pm Monday to Friday
