ACT Classes 

classes

ACT classes seamlessly integrate mindfulness and spatial awareness using theatre games and creative movement activities.  Learning to collaborate with others, confidently express themselves, and develop an appreciation for the performing arts is all part of the experience. Our goal is to help children develop increased confidence, creativity, and self-expression skills whether onstage or at school. Come Play with Us!

This class will utilize students' imaginations and expand their vocal expression skills as they collaborate to create a "radio play".  If your child likes to explore sounds, accents, and tell stories, send them to us! Just like in a stage production, a radio play requires teamwork to tell a story through sound effects and vocalization.

Ages 8-12

Saturdays, 10:15am-11:15am

Instructor Brandon Johnson

Students will expand their creativity as they learn to think on the spot and share their ideas in this fun class where there are no wrong answers! Using theatre sports, self-expression and characterization, students will learn how to channel their ideas as creative storytellers and they’ll laugh a lot. Instructor Brandon Johnson knows that collaboration and teamwork skills grow when classmates work together, and those skills extend to school projects and presentations too. Confidence will grow as students perform in front of peers and communicate things from their imagination. Sharing creative ideas with acting partners + an audience boosts self-expression abilities too. Beginners and those who’ve taken an Improv class before will expand their skills because every class is different. There will be an Improv showcase at the last class for families and friends. Come play with us!
