Acting 4 the Screen
Should acting be a part of a curriculum? Yes! Acting requires active listening and being conscious of your posture and physical demeanor—all key to creating and maintaining solid relationships. Acting emphasizes memorization necessary for college exam prep. And acting strengthens your teen’s ability to confidently present ideas to his peers and those in authority. Acting 4 the Screen is a 12-part course in which your teen will learn the basic building blocks that make an outstanding screen performance. Your teen doesn’t need anything except a computer and smartphone. There are weekly exercises to work on his skills. Acting 4 the Screen includes studio demonstrations by fellow students to help your teen understand those exercises. Whether your teen is an aspiring actor or director or just needs to fine-tune his public poise, he will love learning with Acting 4 the Screen.
The amount of time that this course will take to complete will vary. We suggest completing a lesson every 3 weeks to make it last all year. If you prefer, finish the course in the first 12 weeks of school and use the rest of the year to perfect your acting skills locally!
