PRE-PROFESSIONAL TRAINING for Grades 6 – 8
Our Pre-Professional Training courses are for intermediate and advanced students seriously considering a future in the arts. Students will be challenged to expand their skill set in a disciplined and technique-driven atmosphere. Students are expected to demonstrate a high level of commitment and independence and will be held to a high standard for focus, work ethic, attendance, and punctuality.
Pre-Professional classes are either a nine-week class or a four-week intensive. Students are allowed no more than one absence in a nine-week class and are allowed zero absences in a four-week intensive. All Pre-Professional offerings will have required homework between classes, such as reading articles and scripts, memorizing lines or lyrics, doing independent research, or reviewing choreography. Students who fail to meet the expectations for attendance and homework will be dismissed from class without refund.
Build on the skills you learned in Acting 2 as you apply high-level acting technique to classical scripts. Each session will delve into a different classical style (such as Greek tragedy or Commedia dell’Arte) or playwright (such as William Shakespeare, Anton Chekhov, or Henrik Ibsen). Gain the specificity and authenticity required to successfully bring classical texts and characters to life.
