Acting Classes

Beginner Acting (PK/K students)

This class will introduce our youngest performers to the basics of acting on the stage.  We will use imaginative play as the foundation of performance, encouraging improvisation, storytelling and play-based, character exploration. We will provide students a positive atmosphere of trust and encouragement to learn, play, and perform. Students will explore teamwork on stage and practice poetry as an introduction to solo work.  This class will perform pieces in the Fall Cabaret.

Acting Level 1 (Elementary School students)

This class will expand on skills learned in Beginner Acting by building on the fundamentals and introducing acting technique in a fun and collaborative atmosphere!  Your students will have all the support they need to play and perform in an atmosphere of trust. We will expand on the basics, exploring stage directions, blocking techniques, ensemble-building, characterization, and improv. Classwork will also include scenes and mini-monologues. This class will perform pieces in the Fall Cabaret. 

Acting Level 2 (Middle School students)

This class focuses on the “heart of acting”—character development!  We will help growing performers expand on acting fundamentals.  The focus will be on more advanced techniques, all while maintaining the spontaneity and imagination that creates memorable characters and acting that is free of obvious technique. We will begin with scene-work, moving on to more advanced monologue work.  Students will work with instructors on finding challenging pieces that will expand their acting technique.  This class will help students develop individual plans to grow their performing style and can be taken multiple time, as it evolves with each student’s goals.  This class will perform pieces in the Fall Cabaret. 

Directing/Choreography (High School students)

This class gives students the tools to begin directing and choreographing their own scenes and dances! Students will be challenged to take on leadership roles as they walk their peers through character development, movement, and blocking. They will also be tasked with creating costumes, sets, props, lighting, and/or cutting music. Selected scenes, songs, and dances will be featured in the Fall Cabaret.
