SPRING 2018 CLASSES
Act 1 Acting Class (grades 4 – 6)
Actor's Toolbox: Magic Edition
Mondays, 3:30pm to 4:40pm
How does one create a dynamic character? How does one express emotion on stage? How does one bring action and magic to life on stage? Actor’s Toolbox is a fundamental acting class giving students a set of unique skills applicable to any acting process- from using one’s whole body, to finding a unique voice, to discovering new interpretations of the text. In this round of Actor’s Toolbox, we will focus on text that includes characters and actions based around magic! This class is perfect for beginner actors as well as experienced actors looking to expand their skill set for future auditions and performances!
Act 2 Acting Class (grades 7 - 9)
Lights, Camera, Acting: For The Camera
Mondays, 4:45pm to 5:55pm
Art continues to adapt and change alongside technology. With YouTube, Twitter, and increased presence of television, film acting has become more prevalent. Lights, Cameras, Acting is a fun introduction to the craft of acting for the camera. We will cover some of the fundamentals and techniques that actors use for working in this intimate medium and explore how those techniques oppose or coincide with techniques used on stage. This hands-on, on-your-feet workshop will include recording and footage review to get the perfect shot!
Monday Classes begin March 12 and run 8 sessions.
