About Trike Academy Classes and Camps

Q: How many days of a class can we miss?

A: We understand that sickness, appointments and emergencies happen. But attendance matters because it allows your young artist to fully experience the class and teaches them accountability and their value to the team! Many of our classes involve group/team work, so others will depend on them to attend for overall success. Please notify Trike with any expected days you might miss, so that we can plan accordingly. Students should try not to miss more than two classes.

Q: How young can a student be to enroll in Trike Academy?

A: Our smallest artists should be at least four years old at the time class begins. What really matters is, are they currently in Pre-K4? If not, are they familiar with a classroom environment and can they use the bathroom without assistance?

Q: Are your classes drop-off and pick-up only?

A: Yes! Please allow your young artist to be fully immersed in the experience without distraction, by dropping them off and picking them up each class. Our team works hard to make sure our young artists are in a safe, fun and comfortable environment each day. However, if you’d like to stay and observe, we’re happy to accommodate. Please let our teaching artists know ahead of time.

Q: How do I apply for an Academy Scholarship? What types do you offer?

A: See our Scholarship application form. We award 20%, 50%, and 80% scholarships each semester based on need.

Q: Is it too late to enroll for the class/camp starting today?

A: As a general policy, we are not able to allow same day enrollment. As we continue to expand our programming, we require more time to prepare before each semester. To reflect this, our enrollment is scheduled to close TWO DAYS before a class is scheduled to begin. The exception to this are our Tuesday classes which are scheduled to close the SATURDAY before a class begins.

Q: Do you offer adult acting classes?

A: At this time, we are not offering adult acting classes.

Q: Are summer camps for the grade students are in now or the grade they are going into?

A: Enrollment for summer camps should be for the grade your young artist will be in for the upcoming Fall.

Q: Are lunches provided at Trike summer camps?

A: Lunches are not provided by Trike Theatre.

  • For Full-Day camps, your young artist should bring a NUT-FREE lunch, two NUT-FREE snacks, and a REFILLABLE WATER BOTTLE.
  • For Half-Day camps, your young artist should bring one NUT-FREE SNACK and a REFILLABLE WATER BOTTLE.
