Explore your creativity on stage while having fun
Join us & learn to trust your instincts & build self-confidence!
Improv and acting techniques are developed through scene study, character analysis and back stories, impromptu thinking skills, and “finding and heightening the game”, in improvised on- stage scenes. Throughout the session students find and build their “own” characters, get comfortable with creating on cue, and learn how to quickly build a characters back story to create the emotional depth necessary to make a character come to life. Gain greater self confidence & improve your public speaking skill as well as your auditioning technique.
The On-camera class that prepares students to be in command of their auditions, stand out, make bold choices and get them the call back! Students work with original sides, specifically written with emotional switches and challenges to expand their range as actors. Fun games and tools of the trade and on camera playbacks are covered to prepare them for auditioning and provide a fun secure environment for them to grow in their craft!

Whether you are new to the industry or a professional actor
looking to keep your on-camera acting tools sharp, this intensive 12 week program will allow you to perfect your auditioning and improvisational skills. The weekly 4hr class combines on-camera acting, scene study & improvisation.
Students develop their ability to analyze scripts, with specific focus on: intention, relationship and environment. This in-depth approach to scene work enables the young actor to make nuanced & informed character choices. Students will come away with an understanding of their cast-ability, ease & confidence in front of the camera & a mastery of audition etiquette.
In the on-camera component of this intensive program, we work on the latest sides from film, sitcom & episodic television shows. Tailored to the individual’s skill set, scripts will cover all genres & styles including Disney.
While learning the key rules of improv (“game”, “relationship,” “yes, and…” etc) students’ imaginations and creativity are fostered in a safe and fun environment. Core elements taught lay the foundations for work done on-camera. Students learn to make bolder character choices, to trust their acting instincts and to be more present and open in their auditions and on-set.
