My children have been a part of the dance, music and theater programs since they were very young. Each department is staffed by expert teachers who have helped my kids grow in their individual passions. Additionally, my family has thoroughly enjoyed the wide range of theater productions. I strongly support and recommend The Beck Center.
I would love to see ranchera music or mariachi music. I took my first acting/singing class at the Beck Center as a child. It's a great place to incorporate mariachi music, since all the instruments required to form a mariachi ensemble are taught at the Beck Center. Also, the beautiful costumes and long notes held in these beautiful songs are truly remarkable.
My 19 month old attends the Kids-N-Tunes program and thoroughly enjoys it. The teachers are very engaged with the children and are excellent in providing the students with an excellent learning environment for music appreciation.
Review from Guidestar
My 15-month old loves his Kids-n-Tunes weekly music class. We're in our 3rd repeat session of the class, and it's amazing how he smiles and dances when music is played. His curiosity of how the different instruments work is growing too. Last week he attempted to strum the guitar. I look forward to signing him for art and theater classes as he gets older. What a great community resource!
Our family is so grateful to have this outstanding arts center as part of our Lakewood community. There is something for everyone! You'll find what you want even if you've never held a paintbrush, put on a pair of tap shoes or picked-up an instrument; if your dream it is to be a prima ballerina or professional musician; if you want to see a Broadway quality production or laugh hysterically at improv comedy. It is all there, right in my backyard! We have been attending classes and performances at the Beck Center for over 10 years, and we are always extremely pleased with the professionalism of the Beck Center staff and the high quality production value of all Beck Center performances.
