Act Two Classes (middle school ages)

Spring Monday Acting & Improv Studio: Level 1 (Code 111)

$360

with Heather and Katrinah

Calendar Feb 5, 2024 at 5 pm, runs for 12 weeks

Dates/Time: Mondays (Feb. 5 to May 6; no class Feb. 19 or Apr. 1) from 5PM to 6PM

Location: In person at SPARC

Grades: 5th to 7th

Level One (all experience welcome!) Teachers in this class will work with youth at all levels of experience to help them reach their goals. Learn more about class levels here.

Young people who enjoy creating characters, telling stories, and immersing themselves in a role will delight in this class with an emphasis on play! Students will expand their understanding of important acting and improvisational skills like working with scene partners, making strong choices, expressing emotion, and saying "yes". This dynamic class also teaches focus, empathy, and commitment. Acting and Improv Prep starts with a focus on improvisational comedy skills like trusting your instincts and working cooperatively with a team. Then as the session continues, those skills are applied to scripted scene work, where students will expand their understanding of acting through giving life and truth to a character, investing in the character’s given circumstances, and using acting concepts like objectives/obstacles/tactics. At the end of the session, students will share their favorite parts of these two branches of theatre for a small audience of friends and family. Improvisational topics and acting scenes will vary from session to session. Youth who enjoy this class are encouraged to take it more than once so that they can continue to practice their new skills.

Grades: 6th to 8th

Create a piece of original theatre in this unique class! Youth will embark on an exploratory process where they’ll discover how conversation, improvisation, music, and movement come together to tell a story. Storycraft is centered on amplifying young people’s distinctive opinions and experiences, building meaningful connections, and working to achieve a goal. This class is meant to develop a young person’s process of creating and presenting a story. In drawing connections between personal experiences and dramatization, youth will practice brainstorming, problem-solving, and collaborating to create one original work of theatre as a class. Perhaps most importantly, students will learn to respect and honor the stories of others as well as their own. Youth will share their original piece of theatre for a small audience of friends and family at the end of the session. Because this class creates a unique performance piece with each new session, this class can be taken more than once with fresh lessons and takeaways each time.
