Youth Classes

After School Arts

After School Arts

Capitol Hill Arts Workshop provides joyful art experiences that build skills, a strong sense of community and a life-long love of the arts. Dedicated, professional teaching artists* encourage students to develop personal expression while investigating a wide array of processes and techniques designed to nurture artistic growth.

Students can expect to log into our zoom classroom and feel supported from start to finish by peers and mentors. Our classes are designed to meet each student where they are at, so no matter what stage your child enters the program—as a longtime participant, brand new student, or somewhere in between—there will be an appropriately-paced class that will feel both safe and challenging. As a fun bonus this year, each student will receive a welcome package before their first day. This will include some personalized material as well as a wide array of activities for creative family time outside of school and CHAW. 

*All Teaching Artists have undergone in-depth background checks as part of our standard hiring process.

Afterschool arts classes Tuesdays and Thursday, 3:30pm-5:00pm (grades k-5). Teen classes available below as well!

Light Switch Dance Theatre

Switch Summer Intensive (ages 12-18)

The Light Switch Dance Theatre: Switch Summer Intensive (Hybrid Curriculum) will be held the first week in August at Capitol Hill Arts Workshop. Our focus is to provide a program that allows those accepted to enhance their mindful conditioning and improve upon what they have learned up until they join us. We look to add technical, performance, and choreographic skills to the Young Dancer's toolkit in a nurturing and brave space. 

Over the week, students take daily mindful conditioning and technique classes from our year-round Teaching Artists, as well as, Special Guest faculty. The day will end with Repertory and Composition.

Due to COVID-19, the LSDT intensive will be a Hybrid experience. To ensure the safety of our students and staff, all COVID-19 safety measures will be adhered to in regards to capacity, social distancing, face mask requirements, and temperature checks upon arrival.
