Wagon Wheel
Conservatory educational opportunities for all

Wagon Wheel

Wagon Wheel Conservatory is the education branch of Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts.

Geared toward providing a well-rounded theatre education to kids and adults in northeastern Indiana, we currently offer acting classes, dance classes, voice lessons, piano lessons, and summer theatre workshops.

Our high-quality workshops and classes are run by theatre and artistic professionals who are passionate about offering performing arts learning opportunities to the community and educating the next generation of performers. At Wagon Wheel Conservatory there is a strong focus on helping each student grow in confidence and find their authentic voice as a performer. We create a safe space to experiment, grow, and learn.

Unlike other community programs, you don’t have to audition to take part in Wagon Wheel Conservatory. The Conservatory is for all, whether you are looking to learn a new skill, make friends, or deepen your love of the arts. All are welcome as we believe the arts meet intrinsic needs for all ages.
