About Our Acting Classes & Programs
Building Character Acting Classes are designed for kids who have an interest in the performing arts as well as for the kids who want to try something new and “outside the box.”
In a non-competitive, exciting atmosphere the students will have a blast while they learn acting skills which will enhance their self-esteem and confidence.
Our acting classes are creative and fun and take place immediately after school at your child’s school.
They will also work on concentration, communication skills, eye contact, interview techniques, projection, and memorization…all of which can be helpful on-stage and in the classroom!
Classes include: scene study, character development, improvisation, mime, interview and audition techniques.
