Acting

Acting for the Stage 

Classes start the week of Aug 24

Parents are always amazed when they see the depth of character that can emerge from their child when anxiety is replaced with confidence and creativity is given a place to grow. An actor breathes life into characters and places that would otherwise be merely words on a page. This course is designed to help students find that power within themselves and encourage each other in the process. From learning stage directions and theatre terminology, to the the excitement of performance night, this class will cover everything in between and then some. Students will practice their craft with weekly assignments as well as performing a complete play or a variety of scenes (depending on semester) on our stage with lights, body mics, costumes, props, and more at the end of the semester.

Summer 2020   iMovie Making 

 

This course takes students outside the box (or the stage, in this case) and introduces them to an entirely different genre of acting. Using simple iPhone and iMovie filming and editing techniques, instructors will guide students though the process of making mini movies and trailers. From concept to storyboard to shooting scenes, this class is the ultimate creative outlet. At the end of the 12 week course, students will host a film festival for family and friends showcasing their projects.  Apple devices are not required of students.

Musical Theatre   

Classes start the week of Aug. 24, 2020

 

Wicked, Annie, Newsies, The Lion King, Hairspray, Grease, West Side Story…the list of fabulous musicals goes on and on. Musical Theatre combines singing, dancing, and acting to create a multidimensional art form like no other. This is THE class for kids who love to perform—even if it’s only in front of the bathroom mirror. Our instructors understand the importance of nurturing even the smallest spark of interest in the shyest of children when it comes to getting on stage in front of an audience. All levels of experience are welcome in this class and every student will be cast in the class musical each semester. Along with rehearsing the show, a portion of each week’s 2 hour class will be dedicated to theatre education. Theatre terminology and etiquette, stage directions, theatre history, script and character analysis, acting techniques, and much more will become part of your child’s experience in our musical theatre program. We want all of our students to become better performers with each semester of instruction, and are committed to making the most of every minute your child spends in class with us.

Dance

If you are you looking for a fun, non-competitive dance class for your child that still teaches foundational techniques, these classes fit the bill. The skills learned in these courses are designed to build confidence, coordination, flexibility, and strength and to enhance the performance capabilities of musical theatre students as well. Students will participate in an end-of-course recital on the last day of class to show off their choreographed numbers.
