Summer Student Teacher

Dream Big Performing Arts Workshop, LLC began in January 2006 with one class of four students. It was a small class with big dreams! Now in our 11th year, we have grown to offer an abundance of classes in and around the Chicago-land area, serving over 500 students weekly.

Dream Big Performing Arts Workshop offers a variety of drama classes to children ages 2-18. Our classes are designed to foster creativity, self-expression and teamwork and, of course, to be a whole lot of fun! All of our professional teaching artists have had years of experience in theatre as performers, directors, choreographers and/or writers and have a passion for teaching kids in the performing arts. Some of our most popular classes include musical theatre, improvisation, story drama and, of course, our creatively themed 1-week drama camps.  We are a growing company with great opportunities for aspiring marketing directors to gain hands on experience in creating and developing new initiatives in order to expand this small business.
