The JCC Soccer Fields are closed and practice is cancelled for Thursday, October 18. 

The JCC offers opportunities for children to culturally enrich their lives, specifically on the stage. These youth theatre classes are perfect for anyone stepping on stage for the very first time or for the seasoned performer, looking for another opportunity to shine. Theatre classes are proven to be good for physical, artistic, personal, and social development, as well as increased self-confidence. For more information on any youth theatre programs, contact Rachel Rustin at 210-302-6969.

Summer Performing Arts Camp
The first session of Summer J-Camp is the perfect opportunity for campers to dip their toes in a little acting with our 4-week Performing Arts Camp. In addition to staging a fun show in just four weeks, campers learn acting skills, stage instruction, set building, costume design, movement, and vocal techniques. All skills learned enhance each child's future theatre, music, and dance experiences. Campers also participate in all traditional camp activities, as well, including Arts & Crafts, Israeli culture, Sports, Nature & Science, Drama & Music, small group activities, swimming, and more!
