Winter/Spring 2020

Classes, Workshops & Private Lessons

Help your child or teen set themselves A.P.A.R.T with us this year and empower them with the skills and tools they need to be prepared, ready, and successful. Let us show you and your child how learning and exploring the craft and artistry of theatre can help them stand A.P.A.R.T from their competition and ace their next big moment; whether it be on the stage, in the classroom, or on the sport fields.

 

At The Academy, we believe that every child can develop the presentational skills and confidence they need for success in their endeavors, if they have an encouraging and nurturing environment to safely and freely explore and discover their inner talents and creativity while being afforded the chance to forge deep, lasting friendships in an inclusive, community atmosphere. That's who we are and what we do!

Musical Theatre 2 - Spring Session   AGES 10 - 14

DURATION: 

6 Weeks

SCHEDULE:

Jan 27 - Mar 2, 2020

 

Day: Mondays

Time: 5:45 - 7:00

TUITION:

$299

($307.97 w/ 3% processing fee)

This musical theatre class looks at the first core element of The Academy's approach to theatrical performance: craft. Craft has two well known definitions that we think complement each other. It can be defined as an activity involving skill and as a skill used in deceiving others. A good actor is able to combine both of these definitions to create a truthful and believable character that can look, walk, sound, behave, and move unlike themselves, an activity in theatrical deception that requires great skill and practice. 

Students will integrate  and apply acting techniques and skills to the musical theatre genre with the integration of music and movement. Students will learn about the different types of songs and motivations that help to propel a musical's plot forward. Students will get the chance to explore and discover - through the integration of scene work, song, and musical movement - how actors use the rich material in musical librettos to help create their characters and portray to their audiences the inner emotions and motives of the characters they play. They will also explore how mood, emotion, and motive can shift the meaning of a song and why understanding the moments leading up to and following the song and developing  and being mindful of backstories are important for consistent musical performances.

This class requires a minimum of 10 and maximum of 20 students.

Acting 2 - Spring Session   AGES 10 - 14

DURATION:

SCHEDULE:

Jan 27 - Mar 2, 2020

 

Day: Mondays

Time: 4:15 - 5:45

TUITION:

This acting class look at the first core element of The Academy's approach to theatrical performance: craft. Craft has two well known definitions that we think complement each other. It can be defined as an activity involving skill and as a skill used in deceiving others. A good actor is able to combine both of these definitions to create a truthful and believable character that can look, walk, sound, behave, and move unlike themselves, an activity in theatrical deception that requires great skill and practice. 

Students will have the chance to explore and discover a variety of different types of characters in both classic and modern plays and musicals, and learn how to build, create, and breathe life into characters that can be either very similar to or drastically different from themselves. A focus will be placed on teaching students various methods and skill sets used by actors to make their characters believable and helping the student discover how to use their bodies, voices, and expressions to switch between different character types, a skill that is necessary for all actors, especially when tasked with a swing or ensemble role with more than one character track.

This class requires a minimum of 10 and maximum of 20 students.
