SUMMER session 2017
July 31st – August 11th
10:00am – 4:00pm
This class ignites the imagination and empowers our Young Actors to trust their instincts while expressing themselves truthfully within dramatic circumstances. Terminology, improvisation, stage craft, and scene work are practiced and critiqued to ensure artistic and technical growth in the actor’s work.
ACTING FOR FILM & TV
This class provides our Young Actors with the technical skills and experience required to creatively perform on screen. They begin to practice and perfect applying their acting technique and process through the lens of the camera. Scenes from film and television, as well as PSAs, are recorded, played back, and discussed, providing an opportunity for immediate feedback, growth, and improvement.
This class is designed to expand the Young Actor’s physical coordination, body awareness, and range of expression. Having complete control and full expression through physical behavior is a vital skill for the actor, and this class is designed to instruct Young Actors to embody their movements with expression and imagination.
