ACTING

This course covers all the bases of stage performance for your young artist.  Theatre games allow artists to express themselves through guided exercises that are structured to help improve their performance.  Improvisation skills help to free their inhibitions, making them mature and thoroughly prepared performers.  Also your young artist has the chance  to demonstrate what they’ve learned in a final scene study performance with fellow classmates.
