10-Week Process Class | Grades 1-6

Tuesdays June 7-August 9 | 5:30 – 6:30 PM | $170   Sold Out! Email Jill to be added to the wait list.

(This class is best suited for students who have completed 1st grade. For students who are younger than 1st grade, please look at our Exploration class which meets on Mondays.)

Get a taste of stardom and explore the process of theatre training through high-energy theatre games, improvisation and activities with very limited memorization required.  Create characters, explore dramatic interpretation of classic stories, learn lingo and challenge your imagination and expression.  Every class will include a variety of dramatic activities and training styles. Since there’s no play to rehearse, every class is fresh and exciting.

These classes are especially good for students

  • who are most interested in honing acting skills
  • who may have many other activities to balance and don’t have time for a lot of at-home memorization
  • who become bored with repetition
  • whose parents are very busy people with limited at-home time to drill lines for performance or time to create a costume for the final showcase.

Calling all animal lovers! Unleash the animal inside as we discover how to personify animal characters for the stage. Slither, hop, and prowl as we explore areas of the stage. Growl, hiss and chirp through animal-inspired vocal exercises.  Actors choose to develop a favorite animal character and from this, we dig up some great character interactions.  Acting and play structure combined!

Sometimes it takes courage to be different and sometimes it’s just really, really fun! Everyone is special in some way and it’s high time to embrace unique! We’ll explore some characters that had to find their way from Tacky the Penguin, Horton the Elephant, or Ferdinand the Bull to Coco, Mulan, or Moana. Sometimes we need to blaze our own trail.

Develop acting skills while exploring characters and themes from J. K. Rowling’s wildly popular HARRY POTTER books.  Learn to wield a wand, practice some of the basics of Quidditch, avoid Boggarts and Dementors all while exploring the world of Hogwarts.  All the standard acting exercises will be used so performance skills are honed, but the students will be primarily exploring the world of Harry Potter in an interactive environment. We may visit Hogsmeade Village, study abroad at the American school, Ilvermorney, or even try to recapture some escaped Fantastic Beasts. So much to do and so little time (but we have some time-turners so we can all have even more fun)! This class is best enjoyed by students who have read or watched at the least the first Harry Potter story/movie.
