ACTING & DRAMA CLASSES

Do you get nervous before each new presentation or audition?  Kiss those butterflies in your stomach goodbye! Our acting classes focus on presenting yourself well in any situation, audition or performance.

We offer a range of acting classes that cater to many types of acting genres and students.  Students will develop stronger improvisational skills, work on monologues and scene work, and learn acting techniques and vocabulary.  Ideal for students who want to focus on making clear acting choices and a good impression, these classes will help actors to feel calm and confident in most any situation or casting session. Additionally, the students will learn various on-camera skills for film, television and commercial work.  

Our actors will work with professional instructors from the theatre and film industries to develop and hone their performance skills and will be given the opportunity to learn and practice skills and that are necessary for any type of acting situation.
