Price: $175 (8 classes)


This program offers a great opportunity to develop performance and creative thinking skills. Each term consists of eight sessions led by a professional theatre maker. Participants will learn various skills including acting, text analysis, voice, devising, audition technique, and how to work creatively as part of a group.

In Term Two, students will deepen their skills in vocal technique and text analysis, as well as expand their perspective of acting techniques. They will develop skills as solo artists and enhance their ability to be generous scene partners. Particularly, focus will be given to body and breath work to assist students in auto-regulation, enabling them to bring their boldest selves to their creative work while engaging their playful side.
