Classes & Programs

JDS Creative Academy is for anyone who seeks education, training and knowledge in the arts.

These classes definitely offer a unique experience here in our region. Our classes include Fashion Design, Photography, Backstage Production, Scriptwriting, Musical Theatre and Youth, Teen, and Adult Acting Classes. Classes this fall will also include the our Haunted Studio production, where students learn to design and build a haunted house from the ground up!

We have structured certain classes to meet the 4th – 12th grade California Educational Code for Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) and PE – Stage Combat & Movement and Musical Theater. Other classes and workshops are designed to teach specific industry needs, or are geared to provide apprenticeships. But most of our classes can be taken just for fun too!
