Registration is open for our January 21 filmmaking workshop and for our Spring 2017 improv session.

Joshua’s Stage is the premiere performance center for children ages 3 to 18 with a wide range of special needs; featuring classes in theatre arts, dance, digital photography, and filmmaking.

Your child will participate in an accepting and engaging environment that focuses on building your child’s self-confidence, increasing your child’s self-esteem, and developing positive relationships with their peers and adults through fine arts classes and performances.

We recognize that there are many special needs and disabilities, some more complex than others, and all special needs and disabilities are included for the program. We provide the opportunity for each child in the class to demonstrate success.

Children without special needs are also invited to participate in the program.
