This hands-on class will provide a necessary foundation for acting, emphasizing the development of self-confidence and personal expression. Join us to get creative as we play games, create with our bodies, and work independently and as an ensemble on all theatre aspects. You’ll have so much fun you won’t even realize you’re learning the basics of acting! At the end of the session there will be an informal viewing (most likely through Zoom) of what we’ve learned.
Note: No class January 18.

Artistree will issue no refunds or credits for classes that cannot continue to run in person and must move to a virtual platform.
