Chris Bailey-Resident Vocal Coach, private voice instruction-Prior to moving to Cape Cod Chris was an actor and singer in New York City. He sang and performed on Broadway as well as national and international touring productions, major regional companies, summer stock, rock bands, a cappella groups and more. He borrows his vocal technique and teaching style from Broadway veteran Ed Dixon.

Kara Marie Vose-Dance Teacher-Kara began dancing at the age of three and was trained by some of the most esteemed teachers of our time.  Kara’s favorite teacher, who inspired her to fall in love with dance,  was Sherry Gold (Rennie & Rhee Gold’s mother of The Gold School in MA).  Prior to relocating to Cape Cod in 1998, she owned and operated The Kara Vose School of Dance in Hingham, MA.  Upon arriving to Sandwich she began teaching at Sandwich Dance Academy until 2015.  Kara taught Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical & Hip Hop to students of all ages, and has also choreographed many award-winning competition pieces,  As a teacher, coach,  and mentor for more than half of her life, dance has inspired her to be a positive role model for her students. She holds herself accountable to be the person who shares her passions, and instills confidence through the art of dance, and expression.  “It is not just about the steps and the dances you learn, or how quickly you pick up a step, it is the love and acceptance you feel of being a part of something so amazing, and belonging to a family that will encourage you to express yourself in one of the most beautiful art forms in this life.”

We are thrilled to have Kara share her passion and years of professional experience with our students!

Where are classes held?

Dramafun! classes are currently held at 6A Studios which is located at 24 Route 6A in Sandwich, Massachusetts.  Our studio is a large, bright, open space that lends itself well to the active nature of our classes.  On the "sharing" days for our youngest performers we transform the space to look more like a theatre.   Our older students who are enrolled in performance troupes perform at a variety of local theaters.


In nice weather our students enjoy rehearsal breaks on our spacious deck.
