BEGINNING / INTERMEDIATE ACTING CLASS
Through games, exercises, monologues and scene work, students will practice and develop strong acting techniques, building blocks to the advanced acting classes. Students will learn about the methods of Stanislavki, Sanford Meisner, Uta Hagen, Stella Adler, as well as tips and tricks to build confidence and other life skills. Limited Space Available. At the end of our session the group will either have a safe LIVE Theater Showcase or a LIVE Zoom Performance!

INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED ACTING CLASS
This class will focus on more advanced acting techniques, both for theater and film. Through advanced games, exercises, and scene work, students will continue to develop strong acting skills. Students will learn about the methods of Stanislavski, Sandford Meisner, Uta Hagen, Stella Adler, as well as life skills that help develop power and confidence. We will put these skills to use as we work on a One Act that will be performed at the end of our session in either a safe LIVE Theater Showcase or a LIVE Zoom Performance. Limited Space Available.
SATURDAYS 2 – 4pm (extra rehearsal hours will be added nearer to our performance). Ages 13 – 18. Starts Feb 13

MOVIE MAKING (collectively creating a feature film): HYBRID OF ONLINE AND ON-SITE OUTDOOR FILMING
Online summer camps and fall classes were a huge success! We have honed a system to collectively come together on Zoom to learn filmmaking, create a story, and fully produce a feature length movie (60-90 minutes). We will do it again this spring! Students will come together, collectively choose a genre, write a story, direct and act in our full length movie. We will have guest artists come in to teach workshops and give us tips and tricks to make our film even better. Limited space available.

SATURDAYS 10 am – 12pm. Ages 10 – 16. Starts Feb 13

Monthly online classes begin February, 2021. $125/Month. (Classes run for 3 months, but you may sign up monthly)

ACTING TECHNIQUES PUT TO THE TEST
Whether you are a beginning actor, or more advanced but need some extra tips and tricks, this acting class is for you! Melissa will use games, exercises, and scenes to help demystify important acting techniques AND PUT THEM TO THE TEST. We will get up on our feet and work through some techniques from Sandford Meisner, Stella Adler, Lee Strasberg, and Uta Hagen. Melissa will also throw in some of her own techniques that have helped hundreds of students over the years. Each week is jam packed with information. 
WEDNESDAYS 8-9:30pm. Ages Teens to Adults. Starts Feb 3

UNLEASHING YOUR CREATIVE ARTIST

Need some fun? Need some inspiration? Need to laugh again?
