Welcome to our 2018 Fall Session of classes. At Gateway School for the Performing Arts (GSPA), we offer a comprehensive array of classes, workshops, and intensives for students of all ages and skill levels. Whether you’re a beginner, a musical theatre enthusiast, a comedian, or a serious actor, there’s a class designed specifically for you, each culminating in a final presentation for family and friends on our Main Stage!

We strive to provide a nurturing and inspiring class experience which is practical, yet memorable enough to last a lifetime. We believe in a cumulative approach to the craft of acting and that training cannot happen in one class or one session alone. If you are a new student and need assistance choosing a path, you are encouraged to email us to ensure your placement in the appropriate class. Please note that accelerated classes require a recommendation. If you have prior experience at Gateway or believe you have comparable experience in another program, please email us for approval.
