ENROLL FOR THE NEXT AVAILABLE CLASS! MORE INFORMATION BELOW!
Did you know that theater training helps you child build self-confidence, appreciate the importance of communication, develop empathy and use their imagination and more!
This program incorporates the basics of theater acting, vocal training, body language, stage presence, blocking, etc. There will be some lecturing but most of the sessions would involve acting games giving the actors the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned. Scripts will be distributed throughout the training. There will be a final script to be used in a performance for the final week of classes.
Why theater for children?
Theater, unlike anything else, can really help a child to mature.
Theater is a “team-sport”. Everyone has to do his or her part in order to make a production work.
It can create enormous pressure. Getting up on stage and performing is notoriously nerve-wracking. It can help pull a shy child out of his/her shell.
It teaches discipline. You have to learn your lines or look foolish on stage.
Each play has a message that a child can learn from.
Theater takes a child away from the television, computer or mall and forces them to socialize with his/her peers.
You can develop wonderful relationships between kids of all ages. As I’ve seen time and time again, the older actors love helping the younger actors.
