Acting Program

OVERVIEW

Acting is an important component of musical theater training. Using a variety of approaches, methods and techniques, classes provide students with concentrated work in basic acting techniques, improvisation, character development, scene work, monologue study, stage direction, script analysis, critiquing and mime techniques. Most acting classes are geared to the strengths and weaknesses of the students enrolled and should be repeated.

3 years old and older

Acting: The Children will learn a broad range of skills, including a well-developed imagination, emotional facility, physical expressivity, vocal projection,, clarity of speech, and the ability to interpret drama, in order to adopt a character and tell a story, in theatre, television, film, radio, or any other medium that makes use of the mimetic mode. Young talents will start the learning process by performing stories from books or developed by themselves.

Improvisation: the children learn a form of theatre in which most – or all! – that is performed is unplanned or unscripted, but created spontaneously by the performers.

Meisner Techniques for Kids: The Meisner Technique is an approach to acting based on the practices of Sanford Meisner, an American teacher and actor. The main objective of the method is to develop the actor’s instinct and responsiveness while performing. The training prepares the actors to work externally, from the outside, instead of working from the inside (by using emotional recall and sense memory, which is really hard for young performers).

Preparing for Auditions: The children will learn audition techniques to succeed in the process of getting a role at the studio, the school, or professional productions.

Class Advancement:

Advancement may occur at any time, but on average students are expected to remain in a level for a minimum of one year. Your child may not be promoted every year. Our primary concern is that a student be placed in a level that is appropriate to his or her skill level and physical strength. If the child is promoted too soon, then he or she will miss some very valuable training. 

These children also struggle in the next level, which is unnecessary and could result in injury. A student who carefully develops his or her technique early in the curriculum will find advancement in later years to be smoother and more rewarding. LCA is against burdening their students with expectations and responsibilities that they are not ready to handle.
