Acting Scene Study Workshop - Kids & Teens
This ongoing 6 week acting scene study workshop will offer 2 classes.
Class 1 will be for students 10 to 14 years of age.
Class 2 will be for students 14 to 18 years of age.
Each class will meet once a week, for 2 and a half hours, for 6 weeks.
On weeks 1, 3 and 5, two students will be given a scene prior to the first, third and fifth week of class that they will need to rehearse in person (outside of class), over the phone, or on the computer or phone via zoom or face time with their scene partner in preparation for class. It will be the student's responsibility to understand the scene the best they can, know their lines and bring their energies to the scene. Scenes will be age appropriate, appropriate in content and can be dramatic or comedic.
They will do a "first work" week 1 and I will provide feedback on their scene and work with the actors to understand the scene and what is important to them as the character so they can grow as an actor. Week 2 will be the "second work" where we will get into more detail within the scene to really bring the scene and the story they are telling "to life".
After week 2, the actors will get a new scene and new scene partner for weeks 3 and 4 and then again for weeks 5 and 6. This will all take place in a safe and nurturing environment where positivity, growth, and a continued joy to act will be the priority.
After week 3, if a student wants to continue for the next 6-week session, I will need to receive an email that week (I will send an email with the deadline date) in order to keep their spot in the class. if an email is not received that week, their spot will open for a new student to be part of the class for the next 6-week session.
I am asking students that want to take part in this 6 week on going scene study class to....
*Know there is some preparation work outside of class.
*The class will be fun, but I will need students to take the class serious and come with an open and positive attitude.
*Be respectful of the other actors in the class at all times. When it is not the students turn with their scene, they will be watching the other scenes which is a great way to grow as an actor (notebook and pen or pencil is encouraged).
*Show up for the whole 6 weeks.
*Experience isn't necessary, but a commitment to the class and a willingness to bring your best each week is important.
This is the model I have worked with my acting coach since I started with him. It is highly effective and promotes the most amount of growth for the actors in class by exploring the scenes in depth and all that goes into bringing story to life.
