Session 2

Youth Improv

Ages: 10-12

Youth Improv is the most fun drama class! It's about having fun while building confidence with presentation
skills. Young actors will explore character work, story-telling, and theatre sports. The number one rule in improv is to say “YES”! Train their brain for positivity, creativity and collaboration.

Session 2

Teen Acting with scripts

Ages: 13-18

Teen Acting with Scripts gives aspiring actors the chance to prepare a monologue and also perform a drama and comedy scene with a partner. We experiment with Stanislavski’s acting method of “experiencing” the emotion rather than “representing” it. Enjoy blocking and directing a scene, stage directions, and the “7 Principles of Actor Movement”.

Session 4

Adult Improv

Ages: 18+

Improv for Adults is highly recommended! In real life, it is easy to become paralyzed by overthinking which hampers real progress to solve a problem. Improv comedy helps to break that cycle by forcing you to make a choice and run with it. This theatre style also teaches us to laugh at ourselves and loosen up. A willingness to laugh at ourselves gives us the courage to live life to the fullest. Explore fun acting exercises as well as theatre sports as seen on the

popular TV show “Whose Line is it Anyway?”

Session 3

ukulele Class

Returning for Session 3!

Ages: 9-18

The ukulele is one of most fun instruments to play! This iconic four-string Hawaiian instrument makes
beautiful sounds for such a little “guitar”. Our lessons are beginner-friendly and no musical experience
is necessary. We provide a colourful ukulele. Sing along and learn to play popular songs such as “Over the Rainbow”, “I’m Yours”, and “Hey, Soul Sister”. Our best songs will be featured on the website under “Ukuleles on Fire”. Ukulele class will be the highlight of your week!

Session 2

Teen acting for camera

Ages: 13-18

Teen Acting for Camera gives young actors the chance to prepare a scripted scene in front of the camera. They will learn to take direction from the instructor and deliver film performances rather than theatre performances.  
The emphasis is on rhythm, use of prop, and the honest experience of the actor.
