About

New Spire U is for all the theatre kids in Frederick County! We love the passion and commitment of theatre kids and want you to be the best you can be. New Spire U includes classes for those who love the spotlight; here you can take vocal lessons, acting classes, and dance classes created specifically for teens. New Spire U classes are great for teens who have already taken the performing arts classes their high school offers or who want to go more in-depth in a smaller, more intimate setting. Learn skills from the pros to take your performances to the next level!

Not all theatre kids are onstage, and we haven’t forgotten about techies! New Spire U also includes stagecraft and technical classes. Take classes that will make you a skilled designer and technician. Sets, props, costumes, lighting, sound – learn it all at New Spire U! Hands-on classes in a presenting theatre will begin after the completion of New Spire Stages (coming in 2019!).
