Drama/Acting Classes For All Ages!
Welcome to Studio Sharise Creative and Performing Arts Drama Department! The purpose of Studio Sharise Drama Department is to incorporate professional theater and acting skills in a fun and safe environment. Skills that will help students not only feel successful for the stage or screen, but for life. Students will gain confidence and self-esteem, learn how to work independently, and how to problem solve as part of a team. Kids of all ages love acting!
Our acting classes use acting exercises, games, improv, sketches, scene and monologue work to teach students practical acting skills and techniques. Students are exposed to a variety of acting methods, ie: Method (Strasberg), Uta Hagen, Stanislavski, Laban, etc. as we do not believe there is any ONE perfect method. All methods are tools to be used as needed - sometimes you need a screwdriver, and for some jobs, a hammer. Students learning a variety of acting methods have more tools at their disposal.
Students may have a share day, which is an opportunity for students to show off their classwork for family and friends in a low-pressure, informal presentation as well as have the opportunity to perform in our end of year Celebration Performance. Students also enrolled in our Young Performers Program will have the opportunity to perform in our formal productions.
Because theatre is a team effort and we "learn by doing",
attendance and participation is very important.
Classes are progressive and are designed to be taken year-long.
