GLEE Club – Closed

Join us in learning songs and/or dance routines in this new glee club rehearsal format. While receiving education in both Music and Dance, students will learn material from the classic tale, ‘The Polar Express.’ And at the end of the semester will have the opportunity to participate in one of our city’s most beloved traditions by performing in the Franklin Kiwanis Christmas Parade! “All aboard the Polar Express!” 

Creative Movement

Backlight prides itself on being able to offer high quality training in the Arts for people of all abilities and mobility levels. Creative Movement is the perfect fit for students who may require more direct assistance or the help of a caretaker in daily life, making it a great class for wheelchair users with limited mobility! While these classes focus primarily on Dance/Movement, students will also be introduced to beginning Theatre and Music skills. Those joining Creative Movement will also have two performance opportunities throughout the year- as featured Ensemble members in the Franklin Kiwanis Christmas Paradeand in our “Beauty & the Beast” main stage Spring production. 

 *Every student or student group in this class must have caretaker assistance provided to participate
