AT THE FRISCO SCHOOL OF MUSIC AND PERFORMING ARTS
"Providing students of all ages with the skills to enjoy music and the arts for a lifetime."
This class gives students a taste of what it means to be an actor. Students in this class will leave with a basic understanding of theatre fundamentals including stage directions and blocking, theatre terminology and a brief history of theatre. They will also explore improv, scene study and performance as well as learn how to audition for a play.
Ages 5-8; 90-minute weekly class
Ages 9-teen; 120-minute weekly class
Ages 5-8 use short stories or poems as springboards to explore characters through structured, creative, and fun activities culminating in short scenes or skits. Through various drama, music, movement, and visual art activities, these classes also promote confidence, self-esteem, and creative expression, while working on skills such as active listening and sharing.
Ages 9-Teen transition to Acting Technique: the actors’ process of creating three dimensional characters and truthful actions for the stage. Classes utilize theater games, guided improvisation activities, and scene work to develop characterization and script analysis skills. Classes culminate in a sharing of 2-3 person scenes.
Classes continue to hone the core concepts of acting: from script analysis to performance skill building. As the acting student matures in his or her performance skills, they are encouraged to dig deeper into analyzing characters and their emotions. Students learn to apply interplay and spontaneity, as well as work on transitions and moments of decision.
