KIDS SCENE STUDY
PART TIME FILM & TV TRAINING FOR KIDS
AGE GROUP: 8 - 12 YRS
Your focus in this class is working on the challenging material that leading actors are asked to perform. You will understand how to find difficult emotions, create strong stories for demanding dialogue and understand why characters behave the way they do.
This class is for working, professional young actors. Actors in this class must have a firm grasp of Scene Study and Audition Choices. Students learn to connect emotionally in an age appropriate manner that pushes and prepares them for the complex roles.
ATTENTION: Please submit headshot, resume, and training history or footage (if available) during registration.

Want to Audit? Sure. Be prepared to jump in and get to work, we don't believe in audiences.
Each class is taught by a Regular Instructor, but as all of our instructors are working actors, there will be opportunities for Guest Instructors to jump in and teach!
We send out Weekly Homework Emails to keep you in the loop and materials will be assigned accordingly. Please note that the emails can be sent a week before or up to the night before the day of class. This is to have students practice working in real time. Auditions come sporadically so no time to prepare like the present!
All Classes Are Ongoing and with that, you may find that students tend to continue in the same course(s) for multiple terms. It's similar to watching a movie. The first time around, you're introduced to everything at once. The second time around, you gain a deeper understanding and find details you initially missed. Each class is different as we do our best to cater to the specific students in the round. We also make note of who has worked on what (material wise) so even if we're revisiting certain concepts, they'll be assigned new materials (unless for callbacks or another purpose).
At the end of each term, we send out Progress Reports. Please keep in mind that the results and comments are only a reflection of their work from the recent term.
Although we work in a classroom, we expect Professionalism. We encourage students to explore and fail as that is how we learn. Just like on set, when cameras are rolling, it is important to be quiet and pay attention so those up working can focus.
Each actor works differently and our goal is to pass forward Safe Techniques that the actor can explore to see if it works for them as an individual, in a supportive environment.
We Do Not teach Substitution.
Catch Up System: If a student has to miss a class, there is a possibility of scheduling a (semi)private catch up session. In the session, with an instructor, they would go over the concepts taught in the class they missed. To be eligible for a session, the student must notify the office prior to the specific class with one of the applicable reasons: illness, on set, at an audition, out of town, or prior commitment. Our thought behind it: Just because you can't make it to an in-room audition, you can still throw your hat in the ring by sending in a self-tape! *Not applicable for some classes.
We focus on learning story, script structure, audition and on-camera techniques, and through various explorative exercises, actors are encouraged to find what works for them emotionally, psychologically, and physically.
