Airdrie Junior Theatre Company - Drama and Acting Classes

The Airdrie Junior Theatre Company (AJTC) is Airdrie’s exciting new Youth Theatre Company, catering to all youth, ages 5 and up!

Airdrie Junior Theatre Company aims to encourage youth to discover their inner artists through an inclusive and dynamic classroom experience. In our Drama classes, students get to try improvisation, playwriting, character development, Musical Theatre, and stage technique, all while building themselves and each other up! This means that students get to act, sing, find their imaginations, and move in this creative class! Drama gives students a place to find their unique voices and to build on their public speaking, while creating an environment of acceptance and fun.  Through Theatre, students get to find different ways to express themselves all while getting to expand their imaginations through new ideas! This all leads into a year end performance of a full Musical Theatre production!

We strive to influence and make positive contributions to Airdrie’s thriving arts community. Throughout the season, Theatre Students will perform in both a Winter and Spring production to hone their artistry and showcase their talents.

APA is the best dance academy in Airdrie. Teachers are very nice and their service is really appreciated. As parents, we can able to watch our child’s performance from the lobby. I am really happy that I send my little one to APA. She also enjoys very much

My son did an 8 week dance class last year and loved it. Unfortunately we couldn’t commit to a full year at that time. This year he started Piano with Miss Ramona and Hip Hop Dance Class right after Piano for the full year. He’s been really enjoying both classes. Thank you APA, we love it there!

My daugther loved the summer bootcamp she attended this summer... She enjoyed it so much, she talked about what she learned for weeks. Now she attends the Happy Feet class and she loves thr class, her teacher and her dancemates. :) We will definitely continue attending her classes this year and even extend it the next year. 🌟🩰💃👯‍♀️

We have loved getting to know Miss Angela this season! She has pushed my daughter to become strong both in technique, and also as a teammate. She has created an environment for my daughter to grow into a much stronger dancer this season. She is the perfect balance of firm, fair, and fun. We could not have done this season without her! Miss Darci has been an incredible mentor for my son. The relationships she has with her students is fantastic, and I so appreciate the safe and supportive environment she creates, especially for boys in the dance world. Miss Sarah has been a great dance teacher for my daughter. The environment she creates in the ballet class is fun, but still technique focussed. Her choreography is beautiful and my daughter can't wait to perform it at recital. Miss Alexa has been a dance teacher, mentor and friend to my daughter. She looks forward to going to her classes each week, where she is provided a safe, supportive, and challenging environment. My daughter has learned so much from her over the few years that they have worked together and we can't wait for more!
