PRE-TEEN CLASSES
Ages 7-12

Mondays @ 5:15-7pm
Taught by Jillian Melko

Preteen On-Camera

On-Camera Technique for Preteens focuses on building a relationship with actor and text while delivering a truthful on camera performance. Students in this class will work via sides, commercial copy, monologue and various other sources of text to build confidence and the foundation of acting. The skills practiced in this class will help students socialize, utilize team building skills, explore their imaginations and begin to understand how actors analyze scripts and characters to bring them to life.

Wednesdays @ 5:15-7pm
Taught by Zach Roe

Acting for Preteen

Here, students will explore and begin to understand character development as well as how to breakdown and analyze text as an actor. Taught through a blend of acting techniques, students will engage in off-camera exercises and foundation building as well as put their knowledge to the test on camera via the scripts and text they explore. Students will participate in improvisation, team building, scene study and much more as they further build the foundation that every great actor obtains through training.

ON CAMERA AUDITION TECHNIQUE

Wednesdays 7:30-10:00pm
Taught by Jillian Melko

This class is for actors who are regularly auditioning or preparing for an agent. It’s an ongoing, deep focus on the audition process. The students are greeted with either a cold read or a prepared scene for the camera. We work hard on getting out of our heads and into our bodies through various new and established acting methods practiced each week. We share our personal feelings and our struggles and we use these experiences to make our performances rich and believable. The script analysis process is a big focus. The actors break away and we spend ample time on script analysis. We follow several techniques that help the actor move the script, mastering the mythos and applying what they learn week after week. We often invite industry guests at the end of class to watch the actors work and conduct a mock casting.

SPECIALTY CLASSES
Ages 14 & up

VOICE-OVER CLASS

Thursdays @ 7:30-10pm

Steve will be there to critique and you will get a chance to be able to read in front of him, along with learning some resources to help you get ahead. He will also teach you how to avoid common mistakes made by the new voice actors in the industry.
