Kids – Summer – New York
The Young Actors at Strasberg Kids Day Camp is designed for students looking for a fun and focused week of developing basic acting skills and nurturing their imaginations. The program runs during the summer for one week during July. The camp introduces Grade 2 through 6 students to Acting, Musical Theatre, Stage Combat/Movement, and On Camera. This program explores the creative process and helps develop skills in teamwork, leadership, and creative expression in a very concentrated week of study. Classes are held Monday through Friday from 9:00-5:00. An Open House is scheduled the last day of camp for parents and friends to see their child in action.
Acting ignites the imagination and empowers our Young Actors to express themselves truthfully through dramatic circumstances. Students are introduced to Acting through creative drama exercises, improvisation, and scene work. Students learn the beginning of Lee Strasberg’s Method Acting techniques including relaxation and basic sense memory exercises. 2.5 hours per day.
This course will introduce the students to the discipline and techniques of stage combat. Physical training will take place to strengthen the abilities of the actor with respect to performing aggressive actions in a safe and believable manner with a partner. Both beginners and experienced students will have the opportunity to advance their technique in an increasingly challenging and convincing way. Additionally, students will be introduced to techniques for both the stage and for film and the detailed differences to effectively perform in different mediums. 1 hour per day.
