The goal of this course is for students to own their uniqueness and to merge that into any kind of performing arts: theatre, film, TV, dance, singing. In order to master the craft of acting you need to have a strong technical foundation. Students will engage with several different techniques, like improvisations, methods of Stanislavski and Michael Chekhov, Physical (non-verbal) comedy toward finding what works best for them. The same time this course makes emphasis on main performing skills like aware of the space and time, aware of the own authenticity, self-consciousness and self-confidence, complicity with the audience: freedom and pleasure to be in front of the audiences
Most kids naturally possess the qualities necessary to be successful actors: creativity, imagination, and enthusiasm. The key is to maintain a child’s sense of spontaneity, wonder, and freedom in their work and don’t let adolescence to kill all these natural talents.
In exploring this creative process, besides all these actor/performer’s craft, young people develop skills in teamwork and leadership.
