Jitterbug Performing Arts is a unique program that combines music, drama, dance, and play! It aims to develop core social skills while igniting the imagination. The lessons are packed full of drama games and activities, new and familiar music and movement, and role-play; all of which develop valuable life skills such as self-confidence, communication, co-operation, body control, and creative thinking! Focusing on these skills in a noncompetitive atmosphere allows children to learn, grow, and freely explore new ideas.

At Jitterbug, the emphasis is on building confidence and imagination, not performance. Classes do include stage time and a final show for the children to take pride in, which they love. Many children, will develop a lifelong love for theatre, but clasees are not deliberately set up to teach children to be actors and performers. Performing arts has many benefits for children, all of which the teachers see every day, but first and foremost Jitterbug is about having lots and lots of fun!

Jitterbug director, Lindsay Prather, combined her two passions in life: children and theatre. Having seen tremendous growth in children involved in performing arts, it is her dream to help children learn priceless skills while having the time of their life! Lindsay began performing at age 3, and started performing professionally at age 12. After earning her B.A. in Theatre & Performance Studies, she couldn't wait to help children experience the same love for theatre she grew up with. Watching Jitterbug touch the lives of so many children is a dream come true!
