 “When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” - John Lennon

Auditions - Tips and Tricks

Posted by Thomas Grafton on Sep 8, 2016 4:38:56 PM
In advance of our upcoming auditions for Students, we want to demystify the auditions process and help everyone, particularly those who are new to auditions or curious about the process, understand what happens and how decisions are made. Everyone auditions for things at various points in their lives, and we all have to face the highs of success or the lows of not getting what we want.

Gaining life skills and self confidence from acting classes.

Posted by Thomas Grafton on Aug 4, 2016 4:13:08 PM

The life skills developed in acting and performing arts classes take children further than just the stage and screen. Children who attend acting classes refine their kinesthetic skills, artistic development abilities, cognitive skills, as well as their social and interpersonal communication skills.

Acting classes help children improve their self-confidence and public speaking skills. Children who attend courses in acting are skilled at working in groups and cooperative learning activities. These children use self-discipline, accept feedback easily, and think creatively.

How will all this affect your child? When your child is in school and has to complete a group project, he/she will be better at listening to the other group members and completing the assignment through a consensus-based approach. When the next presentation is assigned, your child will have the self-confidence and vocal control to deliver a speech that will engage the audience. Later on down the road, when your child is ready to start a career, he/she will be prepared for interviews, team projects, and communicating effectively with his or her team.
