Fall, WInter, and Spring sessions, Wednesdays 3:30-5:00, Summer classes vary in structure and times. Fall session starts in September. Payment for all classes required in full before each sign-up
Every week students will practice these skills using current material from TV/film and commercials. Each student will advance at their own level.
After the last class there will be a showcase so family and friends can come see what we've learned. This is a great way for the students to practice in front of an audience, which is key for any aspiring actor, and valuable for non-actors to become more comfortable in front of a group.
*Fall session starts in August 28
