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 of 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.
This program will focus on:
- Theatre terminology
- Voice Expression and Tone
- Careers in the arts
And much, much more!
