Intro to Acting and Theater, Ages 7-11

Want to try acting and learn more about the art of theater? We will explore the basics of acting which includes using the voice properly, moving on the stage, and working as a group. We will use theater warm-ups, games, and exercises to develop beginning acting skills.

Students will work on memorizing and performing short 2-3 person scenes and continue to develop their vocal, physical, and character skills on stage. Rehearsal time outside of class with scene partner may be needed.

Theater Improv and Acting Techniques, Ages 12-17

Using theater improvisation students will explore different acting techniques and emotional preparation from Stanislavsky to Stella Adler to Sandy Meisner.

Let’s Get Physical , Ages 12-17

Saturdays @ 1:00pm - 2:00pm

Exploring how your character moves and behaves on stage is part of embodying and making that character real. How you hold yourself physically depends on a character’s traits, age, and the time period a play is set. This goes hand in hand with developing their emotional life. Each week, we will experiment with different character types, attributes, and behaviors.
