FALL YOUTH EDUCATION
We are so excited to announce our fall session. We so excited to continue to grow and engage our 'Be' kids for another year!
Performing is an important part of self expression and building confidence. Equally important is building acting skills in mind, body and spirit. Acting is not just about being expressive and having fun (which we do plenty of), it is also about learning how to tap into instinct and honesty as well as understanding physicality.
This spring we are eager to introduce students to the study of acting as a skill that is both entertained through performance, but even more, a study of individual growth and knowledge best realized through intensive and rewarding classes.
Enrollment is open!
