As students expand on basic theatrical skills in movement, voice, acting techniques, improvisation, stage presence and awareness, they grow as performers. This class does not require prior dramatic training but a willingness to learn and ability to work well with others.  Observation, team-building and performance skills will all be developed as students grow together and work towards performing their creative work at the end of the term.

For young, aspiring filmmakers and performers who want to learn the basics of on-camera acting work and how to shoot film sequences together. Students will experience the excitement on both sides of the camera as they gain experience shooting scenes, mini commercials, and short films. Students will end the term with a screening of their short film that they created collectively. A link to final films will be sent to all families!

Please note: attendance is very important for continuity and preparation.
