The Acting curriculum is Stanislavski-based with a focus on inner realism. Core training in Acting Technique is bolstered by classes such as Voice & Diction and Stage Movement, giving students the tools required to maximize their expression. Advanced techniques such as Acting Shakespeare and Acting for the Camera allow young actors to deeply explore important aspects of the craft. Acting students may also select electives within Musical Theatre or Design & Production.
