Acting: Berkeley

Acting for Grades 4-8

Acting 1

A “must” for any young performer! Whether it is acting out the lyrics of a song, telling a story through dance or performing a scene, every performer needs a foundation in acting. While playing hilarious improvisation games and exploring short monologues and scenes, students will learn powerful acting skills.

Acting 2

*Acting 1 is a prerequisite for this class.

Let’s get to work! Now that you’ve learned the foundation for performing, it’s time to develop those skills and discover acting techniques that work best for YOU. Building on the basic skills learned in Acting 1, students will dig deeper through experimenting with physical improvisation games and exploring techniques for character analysis and development.

Tuition: $260
