Prerequisite: Students must have completed Kids Explorations in Acting.
This is a performance driven class in which students will work as an ensemble on original material created for them by a TBG professional writer and directed by a TBG director.
The class begins with improv and ensemble building exercises, followed by development of original material in class with the writer. As the material takes shape, students are directed and explore performing skills.
The class culminates in a production. For Spring 2021, this production will be held via Zoom.
This class is on-going, and can be taken multiple times.
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.
