Acting Classes

At FSPA we offer Acting Technique classes for students 8-18 years old. At the end of the year, students transition into rehearsals for our big, school-wide production. All students will complete the class with a firm understanding of what it takes to make an effective impact in both scenes and auditions. 

Youth Acting (8-12 years)

In this class we explore the fundamentals and foundations of acting. We start with the basics of the voice and body, then build into infusing those elements with genuine emotion through scene work and monologues. We also cover stage direction, acting terminology, and audition etiquette. 

Teen Acting (13-18years)

In this class, we begin with voice and body work, and uncover the ways they work together to create genuine reaction and emotion, while building our vocabulary and knowledge-base of acting terms and methodologies. We use that to move forward in scene work, and eventually monologues, where we explore comedic, dramatic, slight, and over-the-top characters.
