Glee Club 2019!

A Firehouse Arts Education Program

2018 GLEE CLUB! Sessions

Glee Club is the Firehouse's school vacation program of voice instruction and choreographed vocal performance. Students learn about the basics of good breath support, posture, vocal production, dance, and performance techniques - all while having fun singing songs they love! Our traditional Glee program returns in its 7th season with April Glee week for one group aged 8-14 and a full day program running 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM. June Glee will be offered for our traditional morning session and afternoon session. Our August Glee will be extended this year for the first time as students spend two weeks preparing a full musical revue. Offered to students aged 8-14, this two-week intensive offers more time than our traditional Glee program, and more opportunity for student growth as performers!
