When working with kids, casting is looking for them to be nobody else but themselves. Though, that’s only half of the puzzle… The other half comes from training, so time to get to the fun work - 'cause if it ain't fun, it won't get done!

This ongoing class is for our small, but mighty actors! Our mission is to educate the whole young artist. We teach technique, focus, and confidence - the stuff that gets you the job. We challenge the actor to understand human behaviour as they make discoveries about themselves. What would they do under imaginary circumstances?

Actors will learn to channel their creativity, take direction, and explore their emotions through breath, body and movement.

For this age group, concepts are introduced via games and exercises to keep actors moving. This class is not text-heavy; however, when working with audition scenes, we ask that parents set aside a little bit of time everyday to help their young actors come off-book. It’s a team effort and ten (10) minutes a day will do! We’ll take it from there!


ON CAMERA ACTING

Less is more and it’s never more true when you are working within a tight frame. Learn how to work comfortably on camera, use effective eye-lines, and own your space!


IMPROVISATION

The imagination is a wonderful thing and with kids, it’s boundless! Improvisation is a big component in this class to keep actors thinking on their feet and practice their listening skills!


EMOTIONAL CONNECTION

Where are feelings? Funny question? ​ Yes, but happy bubbles can live in your tummy, sadness can happen when you sigh, and you can feel very grouchy when you make a fist. How do you feel when you throw your arms up in the air? Our physical and emotional states are intertwined and we believe teaching kids about emotions this way is a safe way to explore them!
