Intermediate Acting (Ages 10-14)
January 23-March 12, 2016

Intermediate/Advanced Acting (Ages 10+. Determined based on experience)
January 18-March 7, 2016

If your child has already taken several classes, performed in shows, and is already comfortable on stage, let us help them further their knowledge. We’ll focus on monologue and scene work, provide more tools to help create a character, and work on more advanced improvisation to help young actors stay on their toes! (Cost: $85)
