What you'll learn in this kids acting camp class:

Improv
Study the fundamentals of improvisation through exercises that help to develop strong ensemble and character work. Develop stage presence as well as patience, self confidence, good communication skills, and a respect for other performers and their creativity.

Clowning
Clowning is 50% physicality, 50% silliness, and 100% fun. Yes, that doesn't make sense, but when it comes to clowning and comedy, it doesn't need to! Kids will have the freedom of movement and self-expression in this class, while also learning about slapstick comedy and how to theatrically control their gestures. It's all about maintaining control while retaining musicality in a performance.

Notes:
We would like to reiterate that due to the large number of students enrolled in each camp, we are not able to take pairing requests.
