At The Spark we don't focus on assigned age groups. Age does not determine the level of a student. We may recommend an age range only with the intention of providing a guideline. We encourage you and your student to consider their level, based on the recommendations below, and age when registering for Spark Programs.
Spark Programs have intentionally limited enrollment and are structured to accommodate and challenge students of all skill and experience levels. Unsure of what this might look like in the training environment or if your student would be a good fit for our model, contact our Spark Admin Staff so they can assist you in evaluating your student's placement.
Students who really enjoy theater and performing who would like to learn more/take their performing to a higher level. Students may be new to theater or have taken some performing arts or technical classes or been in/worked on a play and may have a general knowledge of performing. Most important students have a strong desire to do theater.
Students who have a good amount of previous performing arts and technical arts training and are also seeking to perform and/or further their study of performing arts/theater in higher education such as high school or college. Students have a strong desire to be the best performer they can be.
