What we focus on in this class is connecting your head to your heart. That is the only way to effectively connect with your emotions in a short period of time to nail THE AUDITION. Actors need to nail the art of auditioning and nail the process in a short period of time. Therefore, the audition is everything-but you need to be able to connect. Just doing scenes once or twice is not enough. You need to still be able to break down the scene and know the back story of your character even if you only have 11 hours with a particular character. You will learn to do that in this particular class.Students work on improv, comedy, drama, on-tape, and cold reads, rotating on a weekly basis throughout the month. Students receive new scenes each week before class from our amazing head of scenes-Shay.

All scenes are pulled from shows/films that are currently being cast or will be original material in the vein of what that age group would audition for. Our classes should be treated as an "audition" with students arriving at class with lines memorized and "off-book" (with the exception of cold read week). This class is focused on preparing actors for the audition room by getting them to discover and make strong, unique choices, break down material very quickly, and be able to OWN any audition they walk into and book the job-take it to the next level. The curriculum consists of a rotating curriculum of comedy, drama, cold reads, reader styles, and on tape work. Often times we will "change it up" reader style week and throw in something new to keep it fresh.
This class is an advanced class not designed for a newcomer, more designed for a currently auditioning actor looking to take their work to the next level.

All classes currently on ZOOM until further notice due to COVID-19
ADULT: AGES 16+
YOUNG ADULT: AGES 12-15
TWEENS: AGES 9-11
KIDS: AGES 4-8 READING**

What we focus on in this class is having fun again. Taking the work out of acting and bringing that inner uniqueness out into the work.That is the only way to effectively connect with improv in order to master it. Actors need to nail the art of improv for auditioning and be able to do it on a dime. Improv is no longer just for commercials, it is for movies, television and theatre as well.

More and more we are seeing it in every audition and callback and it is more part of the game than ever! Students work on comedic improv, dramatic improv, long form improv, short form improv, character work and stand up comedy. Kimberly McVicar who heads the program is an accomplished comedian, actress writer and producer.
