All age groups will learn the following skills appropriate to their age level.

 

Drama: An improvisational workshop designed to explore core acting skills, including: creating a character, activating needs, developing spontaneity and focus, and communicating effectively with others on stage. Students will be challenged to discover new ways of thinking, expressing themselves, and creating.

 

Auditioning: An intensive seminar designed to prepare students to perform monologues in an audition setting, this course focuses on developing confidence, rechanneling nervous energy into creative energy, and using the body and voice effectively to tell a story.  At the conclusion of the session, students use their monologues in a mock audition.

 

Stage Movement: Designed to increase the actor’s range of movement and physical expressiveness, this course incorporates elements of mime, dance, and improvisation, as well as training in relaxation and posture development, in order to maximize the potential of the body on stage.

 

Voice and Speech:  This course focuses on developing proper breath control, improving diction and projection, dialect, and maximizing the flexibility and range of the voice to give students the skills they need for clear, effective speech on stage.

 

Scene Study: An intensive exploration of scripted work, this course focuses on developing the actor’s rehearsal techniques. Showcase Performance: We will end the semester using all of the skills learned in a showcase performance.

 

*In addition to the above classes, students will be able to participate in a variety of special workshops both creative and technical led by guest artists.*
