Early Acting provides literature based exploratory classes that encourage confidence by building theatre and life skills in a fun and supportive environment. The process rather than the end product is emphasized. Developmentally appropriate exercises and activities teach beginning terminology and theatre skills in every class. Students also learn valuable life skill such as taking turns, listening, self-confidence, being part of a team, cultivating actor/creators, innovators, and creative collaborators. This all takes place in a safe atmosphere where it is easy to make new friends. Classes are offered year-round and have a different theme each session. A sharing or demonstration for family and friends is held on the last day of each class.
Acting concepts over the full year of study include: stage directions, cheating out, staying in character, facial expressions, gestures, body language, audience behavior, learning lines, tableaux, character movement, character voice, environment, taking directions, blocking, focus, using creativity, projection, and diction.
