Our program focuses on the process and journey of the student. We teach the fundamentals of acting and improv. We help each student develop their skill set and tool kit – in a safe and fun environment! Moreover, we personalize each class for each student, so that our students walk away with an elevated version of themselves.
The skills we teach can be used on stage, in film and in real life.
Specifically, we train students according to the Drama and Speech syllabus of the Trinity College London, which incorporates:
Method acting technique
Breathing and voice exercises
Memorization and recitation of poetry, prose and plays
Literary appreciation (including Shakespeare)
Movement and voice
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 7-18 at any stage in their development cycle– from talented actors to those students who are anxious about speaking in public.
