My daughter gained so much confidence at Vagabond. She was shy and timid in front of groups and after one show, she volunteered to give a speech in front of 100 people. I knew she could do it. She just needed a confidence boost which I credit completely to Vagabond. Thanks so much!
Vagabond is a terrific place for your child to develop their individual talents as actor, singer and/or director and have lots of fun doing it! The bonds of friendship here are truly strong! In addition to this, however, they learn to work in a group, be open-minded and accepting, listen to/incorporate others' ideas, become independent thinkers, apply self-discipline and conquer the fear of standing up and performing/speaking alone. Sound like important skills for life? You bet!! Both of my children have gotten so much out of this program, while we all get to enjoy the absolutely amazing professional quality show productions.
I'm voting for VAT this year because of the great programs they run. Both of my kids participate in their shows and really enjoy it. It's really great to see kids get up on stage and be proud of their performance and gain confidence from being on stage - all while having fun!
