Explorations in Acting for Kids (ages 6-9)
Our Explorations in Acting for Kids for ages 6-9 encourages students to explore, play, and be a part of an ensemble! These classes are a great introduction to the art of theatre and storytelling.
Through games and exercises, students are introduced collaborative play and ensemble building skills, the foundational elements of storytelling, and improvisation. Students are introduced to acting and performance skills by helping to create and share short plays using either a piece of children’s literature or by creating their own characters.
The class culminates in an open class to share their plays for friends and family.
This class teaches our specific approach to storytelling, and introduces students to the same tools that our adult professional actors work with. We believe that to act is to play and that students learn the most in an atmosphere of relaxed positive reinforcement.
What makes The Barrow Group School different from many other studios in NYC is that all of our teachers have gone through an intensive teacher training program with TBG co-Artistic Directors Seth Barrish and Lee Brock. So when your child takes a class with us, the teacher has trained for years at The Barrow Group in our specific approach.
