View our different classes below. We have classes suitable for every age group, Kindergarten through 12th grade.
All class sizes are small to insure a safe & nurturing environment. This allows students to explore more freely as well as to receive individual attention. All classes consist of improvisation games, scene study, movement, technique, character development, audition preparation, voice and diction and an opportunity to build self-confidence!
Fairytale & Other Fantastic Characters is designed to ignite your child’s imagination. We’ll explore classic Fairytales, such as The Ugly Duckling, The Three Little Pigs, Cinderella and much more!. The class will consist of acting games, improvisation, skits, dance & music. Parent observation day will be during the last class of the session, where we’ll perform scenes. Come explore with us!View classes and schedule…
Grades 3-5 & Grades 5-8
This is an improvisational workout geared towards helping actors find creativity and enhance their skills as a performer. Actors are trained to follow their instincts on stage through exercises that focus on performing scenes with little or no rehearsal. It is important for students at this age to let go of how they feel they should perform, and instead start to just be on stage. To free the actor from their own pre-conceived notions of a role, or scene, and to produce a more versatile and daring actor, in depth character work is encouraged. Parent observation day will be during the last class of the session, where we will perform scenes and improvised skits.View classes and schedule…
This class is designed to introduce actors to specific techniques that develop their mind, voice and body for a confident and honest performance before a live audience. Improvisation and scripted scene study provide fluency in the acting fundamentals of conflict, action and given circumstances. As collaboration is essential to the creation of live theatre, students will develop social skills required to find creative solutions for problems as a member of a team, to confidently give voice to original ideas and grow in respect of the ideas of others. Actors will be given roles, scripts and will need to memorize their lines for our performance (this is not a musical). Parent observation day will be during the last class of the session, where we will perform a play.View classes and schedule…
The 2-hour performance class has all the elements of our acting & improvisation classes, as well as a clear focus on the rehearsal and performance process. This class is curated for the dedicated actor who wants to challenge their abilities and strive for achieving their goal of being “performance ready”. Our performance class will have the opportunity to fully understand what it takes to be in a performance and how to prepare physically, emotionally and technically. Actors will rehearse weekly and learn how to develop their characters during the rehearsal process. Performance Class plays may be Dramas, Comedies or Musicals. Our goal is to work as an ensemble and prepare for our performance which will take place during the last class of the session.View classes and schedule…
