FILMMAKING FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
With Adria Dawn ~ Spring 2018

View additional films HERE

Coming Spring 2018

With the success of previous class films including “Bystander” (anti-bullying), “Excluded” (social exclusion), “Viral” (peer pressure and social media), “Pressure” (overscheduling and pressure), and “Help” (depression), Adria Dawn will be back to collaborate with students to make a new short film that centers around a current topic facing our youth today.

Together the class will learn the process of filmmaking and on-camera film acting through the creation of a film, including writing, pre-production, casting, production, acting and a final screening. Previous films have played film festivals in New York City and Hollywood.  These films are used in classrooms across the country to spark needed conversations with kids today.

BECOME YOUR OWN STAR: On Camera Study

NEW CLASS-begins August 29

with Emily Rabinowitz


Cameras UP! Learn the special skill set it takes to become a director and develop powerful concepts to shoot on your personal smart device.  This class offers the full experience needed for preparing self-taped auditions/videos and getting them out in the eyes of the public. You will gradually become more comfortable with the all-seeing lens of the camera and improve upon connecting with your audience. You will build confidence to audition and work with other actors effectively, not only on camera, but off as well.  You will learn on camera slang and phrases to be prepared to work (and feel “in the know”) on a professional set. You will play with your creativity and build upon your improvisational skills in order to feel prepared at whatever the industry throws your way. So, what are you waiting for? Lights, Camera, Action!”

Advanced Acting:

With George Keating
Audition Only Class – Fall auditions TBD for questions contact info@theperformersschool.com 

FOR THE ADVANCED ACTOR

This is a rigorous class for the serious and disciplined acting student. Acting skills will be taught in a setting which emphasizes group work, with an ultimate goal of performance.

Training will be physical. A high level of concentration will be necessary. The class will culminate in a minimally produced classroom performance, possibly in spring. Students will use their bodies and voices in new ways to create a personal and imaginative production celebrating the individual members that make up the selected group. Rehearsal will take place during class hours, but students will need time outside of class to memorize and review.

2nd semester registration is only for admitted students. Please visit the Register and pay link at the bottom of the page.

Fall Session Dates (exact dates TBA)
Mondays
7:00 – 8:30 pm
7th through 12th grade ONLY
Cost: $495 (14 weeks)

What to prepare-Admittance is by audition only.
This audition is for students who are not currently enrolled in Studio.
***Wear comfortable clothing and shoes.  Do not wear “audition” clothes.  Comfortable dance clothing would be appropriate, but not necessary.  Athletic clothing would be appropriate.  You will break a sweat.***
I am looking for advanced actors whom I can guide to explore language and physical movement and who are willing to discover meaning beyond the superficial.
I am looking for potential, not a finished product.
This audition will be fun.  Think of it like a free acting class.  I want to see you and get to know you as a young artist.
