Acting first! That has been our training motto since 2012! Versatile actors can act for a lifetime! From stage to screen good acting is good acting and knowing the proper technique for any opportunity enables young performers to enjoy acting for years to come!
Our one week camp focuses on learning or reinforcing the basic tenets of acting. We examine different approaches to acting from Method to Meisner. We explore the difference between on stage and on camera. We discover the importance of commercial acting. We sharpen our ability to improvise and create!
The week culminates in several festivities. Campers will participate in a mock audition in front of an industry heavy hitter! Past panelists include Leslie Rodriguez Kritzer, Michael Potts, Douglas Lyons and Joel Kirk.
Campers will end the week with a showcase for family and friends. They will also go home with a personality reel, an audition monologue for stage AND camera. More importantly they will walk away with the ability to communicate effectively, gain self confidence and self esteem, sharpen critical thinking skills, how to use your strengths and market your brand. Lastly, students will be able to gain an understanding of the business : headshots, resumes, agents, and different paths to success. This also INCLUDES a session for parents!
Our successful training program has produced stars like THE WATCHFUL EYE’S Lex Lumpkin and ALL AMERICAN’s Michael Behling. Our curriculum was also adopted by the Indiana Black Expo’s Performing Arts Academy!
