All classes are held once a week for 10 - week sessions (Sept. - Dec.; Jan. - Mar; April - June). There are three (3) sessions per season.
Acting 1 for ages 6-9 uses interactive theatre games and dramatic story telling so children can learn to express themselves both verbally and non-verbally. By showing rather than telling, personal and creative freedom is encouraged in a nurturing environment. The result is a flowering of self-expression, which can be applied in their everyday lives. The workshop is on Tuesdays from 4:00 to 5:15 p.m. Cost $350.
Acting 2 for ages 10-13 begins with sensory work and moves on through basic acting techniques. Students are taught through the use of theatre games, role playing and improvisation to physicalize rather than verbalize their thoughts and emotions. During the course of the year, students work on problem solving in scenes and improvisations. This workshop is held on Wednesdays from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. Cost $385.
Acting 3 for ages 13 -18 joins basic and advanced acting techniques through relaxation exercises, sensory work, sense memory technique, character development, monologues and scene study. The class promotes an exchange of ideas and a forum for communication. Students develop a sense of responsibility and commitment while working together with other young artists.
