REAL. LIVE. ACTING TRAINING.

From Shakespeare -- to Film/TV -- or Musical Theatre, in our Acting WorX Division, students will learn: Proper Use of the Voice in Acting; Basic Stagecraft; Stage Presence; Character Development; Monologues; Improv; Comedy; Music on the Stage; Overview of the Entertainment Industry; Audition/Interview Tips & Practice; and Musical Theatre. Acting WorX is a skills-based academic approach to the study of theatre which leads the students through a matrix of specific skills needed for success in today's film & TV industry, advertising work, and the stage.  Our WORKSHOP PROGRAMS afford our Students the ability to check out our offerings on a short-term weekend basis, explore areas of interest,  and walk away with valuable information and experience.  Some of our workshops are simply subject areas that can be covered and experienced quickly and do not warrant a dull semester class, or they may enhance the regular classes in progress.  Feel free to explore your dreams and aspirations and sign up for a Workshop without having to make a long-term commitment!

ALL WORKSHOPS ARE DISPLAYED ON A "TO BE ARRANGED" BASIS.  PLEASE TELL US ABOUT YOUR INTEREST IN ANY WORKSHOP PROGRAM BELOW BY POSTING THE CONTACT INFORMATION AND MESSAGE BELOW TO THE RIGHT.   IF THERE IS AN EVENT REGISTRATION POSTED BELOW A WORKSHOP, THAT PROGRAM IS SCHEDULED AND WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO REGISTER AND JOIN US!
