Acting Academy

A place where imaginations can run wild, and self-confidence is promoted, Acting Academy is an after-school program that fosters an environment where students are welcome to express themselves while learning about the world of theatre! Acting Academy strives to create a safe space for students to explore and expand their minds in a personal and professional manner while learning skills to use in and outside of the classroom. This program culminates in May with a performance of a junior version of a popular Broadway show.

  • Acting  
  • Improv  
  • Theatre terminology 
  • Voice expression and tone 
  • Physicality  
  • Careers in the arts 
    and much, much more!
