  1. Method Acting for 5 – 8 Year Olds, Tuesdays, October 25 – November 22, 4:30pm – 5:30pm ($189)
  2. 30 Minute Improv Games & Warm Up + Method Acting for 5 – 8 Year Olds, 4:00pm – 5:30pm ($280)

Do you have a budding actor in the family? Turn your child’s love of make-believe play into a passion for the arts. Through theater games, improvisation, performing fairy tales and performing children’s books, your budding actor will explore her creative side, build confidence, and develop spontaneity – while enhancing social and motor skills. Students learn and practice skills such as listening, sharing the stage, hitting a mark, enunciation, voice projection and creating a character.

D67 is doing a production of “The Aristocats” this fall. Rehearsals are on Tuesdays from 3:00 – 4:00. In order to avoid conflicts, we are starting our Method acting class at 4:30. We have added this thirty-minute improv and theater games class for students who would like to start at 4:00.

Improv and theater games are structured play that foster spontaneity and self-confidence. This is a great warm up for Method acting class!

Ages: 5 – 8 Years Old
