Welcome Saluda Camp to the Showtime Family!
She will be teaching acting classes for kids and adults starting the first week in March!
Saluda has worked in theater as an actor, teacher, and director for 23 years. After getting her post-graduate degree in Acting at the London conservatory Mountview Academy for Theatre Arts, Saluda moved to NYC and embarked on a 16-year career as a professional actor in NYC theater and in regional Shakespeare companies. As a teaching artist, Saluda taught acting, Shakespeare, playwrighting, stage combat and mime to children ages 3-18 for seven years, in all five boroughs of NYC. Saluda’s voice work can be heard on Audible.com as the narrator of a young adult audiobook book called Now I Know How! by Demetra Yuvanu.
In Rock Hill, Saluda was the Director of Theatre for Saint Anne School for 6 years. Among her favorite productions that she directed are Fiddler on the Roof, The Miracle Worker, Hello, Dolly!, and Our Town. In addition to teaching 1st-4th grade drama and high school acting classes, Saluda coached students in the annual Shakespeare competition, Bardslam. Saluda is thrilled to be joining Showtime Academy, to share her love of acting with children and adults!

Being nice to others is not always easy but is completely in our own control. We cannot control how other people think, act or feel, but we can control how we treat others.
It doesn't matter....
If someone looks different, thinks different, acts different, learns different..... we should still choose to
In theatre, school, work, on social media, etc., we can get caught up in trying to be the best, showing we are the best, bragging about our accomplishments, but we must find the instincts to aim for superiority and remember to practice humility in all we do.
We offer private lessons in Voice, Piano, Ukulele, Dance and now Guitar!
Gerald Wheaton is available for Guitar lessons.
Want to sign up? E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Cell phones and tablets can be used during class to record things for practice purposes, but only at the direction of the teacher. At all other times devices should be silenced and put away. Some students (especially our tweens) struggle with this, and teachers will begin confiscating devices until after class as needed. -Thanks!
Yes please! Our upper Elem. kiddos and older are encouraged to wear deodorant to class. Bring extra if taking lots of classes back to back.
Parents with kids enrolled in our basic or immersive programs can take class for free. Wednesday Tap at 12, Ballet at 1, Thursday Ballet/Tap/Jazz combo 7-8:15.
Email us to sign up.
Join CDYC! With CDYC, parents and participants over 16 years of age, can work concessions at a few large events in the area and earn tuition credit that is applied directly to their Showtime account. Many of our families who do this cover a large portion of their tuition, if not all of it, this way. There are multiple events available throughout the summer to build up a credit for the fall.
We ask that children do not wait outside of the studio for their parents. So, parents with elementary students especially, please pull up to the door or come inside to pick up your child. We have seen kids running across the parking lots or trying to wait in the street for parents. We want to avoid any dangerous situations. Thank you.
