Neighborhood Acting Classes
South Coast Repertory's free afterschool classes make the magic of theatre accessible to underserved children. These weekly classes are dedicated to promoting self-confidence, self-expression and creativity while developing basic theatre skills. Professional teachers from SCR's Theatre Conservatory travel to locations across Orange County, Calif., where a need has been identified and conduct classes at no cost to the students, host facility or program.
By the end of the 7-to-10 week session, Neighborhood Conservatory students will be able to:
- Move freely in front of other students
- Speak with poise in front of peers
- Work more effectively, confidently, and creatively with others
- Develop a character through exploration of voice and body
- Begin to share stories in a dramatized form
If your school is interested in hosting a Neighborhood Conservatory class or would like more information, contact Conservatory and Educational Programs Director Hisa Takakuwa at (714) 708-5509 or [email protected].
