  • Continuing on our journey of self-expression through acting, we turn our attention to creative story-building and play for an audience. While keeping up with regular physical, vocal, and play exercises, basic scene development and more specific acting techniques are explored. With direction from the teacher, short, interactive theatre pieces are created with a mind toward eventually presenting (in Level C).

  • Level 1: Teen Acting (8 weeks, one 1.5-hr. class per week) $320 + tax

  • Teacher: Adam Kelly Morton

  • Similar in approach to our Intro to Acting class for adults, the focus of this in-studio course is to learn basic acting techniques while engaging in play and performance work. Much of the focus will be on comfort of expression in an ensemble, in-person setting. We start with the basics of movement, voice, and acting, with every step leading towards a freer ability to express oneself, and towards easing shyness and performance anxiety. Conservatory style acting exercises are condensed into a fun and challenging course for teens.

  • *Completion prerequisite for Level 2.

  • Sunday, October 24, 10:30am-12:00pm

  • Level 2: Teen Acting (8 weeks, one 1.5-hr. class per week) $320 + tax

  • Having completed the Level 1 class, students delve into the physical and vocal realm of character building, along with improving their performance skills and confidence. Using the “3 CHAs” as a guideline (Charisma, Character, Chance), further monologue and scene work encourages strong choices both in character development and in scene partnership. Competition, pursuing action, territory, and core body work are all investigated thoroughly, allowing the actor to bring the character into themselves, with a compelling result.

  • *Completion prerequisite for Level 3.

  • Level 3: Teen Acting (8 weeks, one 1.5-hr. class per week) $320 + tax
