The Ensemble Theatre offers summer program

The Ensemble Theatre, 3535 Main St., will host two Young Performers Program (YPP) summer sessions. The first session is June 5- July 1 and the second session is July 5-July 29.

“We are proud of the opportunity to cultivate the minds of youth through the arts,” said Eileen J. Morris, artistic director for the Ensemble and program co-founder.

“While we are excited to have so many celebrity alumni, we have an even greater list of alumni excelling in other professions such as doctors, lawyers and entrepreneurs.”

YPP is a training program for youth ages 6 to 17 who desire to explore their creative and artistic talents. Classes are held in theater, dance, music, and technical theater with a culminating performance. Since its inception the program has extended to include week-long sessions for winter break and spring break.

The sessions are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the option to enroll in an expanded day of workshops. This summer, tap dance classes are added and taught by dancer Alde Lewis.

Parents may register their children now for single or multiple sessions. Visit http://www.ensemblehouston.com/programs/ypp.html
