After School Classes


A six week workshop designed to strengthen the acting “muscle”. Through acting games and exercises, each week students will work on a different aspect of acting technique such as movement, voice, characterization, pantomime, plus others. Teamwork, focus and listening are added benefits in this acting workshop. Students will also work on a short 15 min skit to apply the skills learned and will perform at the end of the last class. Session will be posted throughout the year as they become open for registration (roughly a month before the class starts).

WHEN: All sessions will be on Tuesday afternoons at these times:

Grades 1 – 4:  4:30 p.m. until 5:20 p.m.

IMPORTANT NOTICE – Due to a production that will be taking place during the span of our after school class for the Late Fall Session we want to make sure that everyone is aware that peanuts will be used HEAVILY within our building. This means that peanut dust will be around and in the air. We will clean up each night but due to certain allergies we felt the need to make sure all everyone is aware.
