6th - 12th Grade Classes

Advanced Acting: Emily Rabinowitz


With Emily Rabinowitz
Instructor approval required – Please email info@theperformersschool.com to request admission.


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.

7:00 – 8:30 pm

With Adria Dawn ~ Spring 2018

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.
