Our acting school, The “Saturday School”, holds classes during the school year for 3 hours on Saturday mornings. We maintain a limit of 26 – 32 students in each class size to ensure that all students can fully benefit from both individualized and group instruction. Because we limit the size of these classes, there is generally a 2-3 year waiting list to join the organization. Students in these classes participate in dance and music instruction as well as in theatre arts. In addition, great attention is devoted to helping the children build their self esteem, confidence and public speaking skills; skills and abilities that will enhance their adult lives wherever their career paths will take them.

Dance instruction is a big part of Saturday School. Each week RCT students work on age appropriate choreography, techniques and skills that challenges them to achieve their personal best in a positive and rewarding environment. Students will develop rhythm, coordination, and confidence. RCT's goal is to promote the love of dance and to create a solid foundation of technique, flexibility and most importantly fun.
RCT's Music instruction is another large component of Saturday School curriculum. Music is the foundation for a things theatre, and our RCT teachers are dedicated to building each child's skills in diction, projection, pitch, and vocal expression. They learn how to sing in an ensemble and also have the opportunity to be featured in solo pieces and acquire the presence and vocal skills required to participate in theatrical performances.
RCT's alumni who attend high School have the opportunity to join the Tech Class. This class teaches students about the behind-the-scenes magic of a production. It allows them to gain valuable insight into what it takes to put on a production or performance. They meet weekly at Saturday school and learn about theatrical makeup, set design and prop creation.
