Get comfortable in your craft and on stage as we navigate the world of performing arts in our one week acting intensive. Expand your budding actor’s portfolio, and review a range of acting styles in our ensemble building activities. Performers will be brought through various techniques and workshops, gaining access towards creating their own polished scenes and performances. Each performer will receive an updated headshot they can use to audition with. The group will also attend a show in downtown Atlanta, a city bursting at the seams with acting opportunities and art. Then at the end of the week family and friends are welcome to attend our collective show where each performer will have their chance to shine on stage!
