Combine imagination with technique! • 融入創意,把角色演繹得栩栩如生 • 融入创意,把角色演绎得栩栩如生

In these classes, students develop acting skills integral to all theatrical disciplines including ensemble-building, storytelling, and character creation. Not only are students expanding their physical, vocal, and communication skills, but they are also learning transferable skills such as confidence, focus, listening, and trust-building.
