Program

Our program is not just another acting workshop. We develop a well-rounded, confident student – long term – in a safe and fun environment.  

 

Moreover, we personalize each class for each student, so that they walk away with improved acting, public speaking and improvisation skills. Skills they can use on stage and in real life.   

Specifically, we train students according to the Drama and Speech syllabus of the Trinity College London, which incorporates:

 

  • Breathing and voice exercises

  • Reading aloud         `

  • Memorization and recitation of poetry, prose and plays

  • Improvisation

  • Acting and directing techniques

  • Literary appreciation (including Shakespeare)

  • Theater games

 

Week after week, our students learn how to stand up with confidence and perform in front of their peers. They also learn how to read familiar and unfamiliar text passages with understanding and expression, so that their listener remains engaged and interested at all times. Through regular improvisation and theater games, our students learn how to collaborate with teams and develop leadership skills. Above all, our students learn how to think creatively and communicate effectively.

 

Our program is suitable for students ages 6-18 at any stage in their development cycle– from talented actors to those students who are anxious about speaking in public.

WHEN: Group classes will be held for one hour every week Monday through Saturday.
