Imagine, create, perform. Whether your child is meant to be on stage, in film or needs a little more confidence in speaking in front of their classmates, Kids Act can help motivate, inspire, and enrich your child.

Through playing theater games, puppetry, creating characters and stories, and performing for friends and family, Kids Act encourages students to manifest their talents and abilities through the joy of creative expression.

This class will also prepare students and parents for the audition process from having the perfect headshot and resume to having your child be a STAND-OUT in the audition room.

Are you interested in movie making and acting, but you're not quite sure if it's right for you? Do you want to know how to get ready for film, TV and/or the stage? Give it a test drive.

These classes are for teens interested in learning the business. How to get started? What to do next? It's a lot of info but so well worth it.

It's a great opportunity to practice, have some fun, and meet new people. These classes encourage spontaneity, simplicity and fun.

We believe that to act is to PLAY, and that students learn the most in an atmosphere of relaxed positive reinforcement. We teach our specific approach to storytelling, and will introduce students to the same tools that our adult professional actors work with.

This class will also prepare you for the audition process from having the perfect headshot and resume to being a STAND-OUT in the audition room. These classes will best prepare you for opportunity.

Adult TV Acting & Film - Ages 18+

Saturday, Jan. 15 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.; Saturday, Jan. 22 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.; Saturday, Jan. 23 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.; Saturday, Jan. 29 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Instructor: Kimberly Miller and Shane Yuhas.

These classes are about the fundamentals of acting through exercises, script analysis, scene study, improv and monologues.

Here you will explore and develop the actor's artistic tools: body, voice and imagination. You will gain an understanding of the actor’s process in building a character, and be encouraged in making their own creative choices of self-expression, in bringing written characters to life.

This class atmosphere is friendly, highly supportive, energetic and fun, and an excellent place to honor and examine your acting “bug.” This class will also prepare you for the audition process from having the perfect headshot and resume to being a STAND-OUT in the audition room. 

If a class needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather, the make-up date will be Saturday, Feb. 5. Classes are non-refundable.
