Rocky Mountain Conservatory Theatre is excited to announce our Fall 2018 session of Acting Classes for children ages 5 to 18. We recognize a hunger for intensive and dynamic training programs for children and teens interested in theatre arts, and look forward continuing to provide the best performing arts programming to the South Florida youth community.
DAYS: Mondays, One Session, 10-Weeks (30 Classroom Hours)
FALL 2018 SESSION: September 24 - November 26
*Registration Now Open!
SESSION FOCUS: We will start the class workshopping a RMCT original Television Show “The Big Audition” developing the cast of characters in their zany overly dramatic summer camp environment. This situational comedy will explore the dark comedy of the backstage environment of young performers full of hope and dreams of stardom juxtaposed with their camp directors, some working in the business and doing quite well for themselves alongside others bitter and jaded by the job that was theirs but somehow got away from them. By class’s end, we will shoot a short with the class participants and audition the group for a possible recurring role on the show.
Actors Conservatory Class will focus on our acclaimed intensive Actors Conservatory Program, designed to foster the young actor's creative process. It is a course for those who aspire to be future professional actors. We provide Conservatory training, with focus ranging from classic to modern work, to movement to vocal exercises to stage combat and more. Individual classes will examine emotional truth, process, and scale for the stage. Conservatory's purpose is to prepare young actors for being confident in their role on stage while learning how to embody their character. It is crucial to understand that those who aspire to professional status cannot grow without regular application of the above. Conservatory training is an ongoing process; its purpose is to prepare young actors for the stage, film, and TV.
Students who might miss the first day can arrange for an alternate or video meeting or introduction to ensure proper placement into our project. All students enrolled in this class will be equally involved in the production with a speaking role worthy of one’s skillset; 'you cannot get better in your art if you don’t learn to walk and talk at the same time when the stakes are high and it really counts' is the philosophy here. Finally, Shakespeare is the marathon of acting, the foundation upon which all great actors build their artistic expression; to learn to act his work professionally, will guarantee the young artist the confidence necessary for a successful career in ART. Soneheim has been called the modern Shakespeare of musical theatre and his works represent a broad range of artistic masterpieces, both in text and song.

This class will focus on the growth of the actors' process by using the techniques of Meisner, Stanislavaky, Uta Hagen, and La Coque. We will be exploring both internal expression as well as physical techniques.
Conservatory has proven to be a very beneficial class for our young adult students. There are many success stories of students who have trained with Anthony Hubert, our Artistic Director, who then enter the professional world with the skills necessary for achievement as a well qualified actor in the business. Each year we choose a challenge for the students to sink their acting chops into, with a showcase in April at the end of our academic year. We find that Shakespeare as a foundation for growth in the work accelerates our students' understanding of the artistic process, propelling them to unbelievable heights in their work. This year's Conservatory Class will be special, for we have students in their tenth, ninth, eighth, seventh, sixth, fifth, fourth, third, second, and first years of training. All are the right place to start! This ensemble is ready to take a professional leap. Come and be a part of this exceptional work. It will change your life forever!

This fun Class is for the creative child who is determined to be on stage. Successful performers start off on the stage learning how to be comfortable in their own skin so that they can begin to play the roles of other people. Our students learn that the creative process is not exclusively for some mysterious group of humans, but rather it is a simple and fun filled skill set that everyone should learn. Acting 101 Class is magical, fun and necessary for every young actor.
THEMES FOR 2018 ACADEMIC YEAR BOCA RATON ACTING 101 CLASSES, Ages 5-10:
Fall 1, 2018 Session Focus - "Exploration of Popular Children's Play Roles to Work on Character Development': We start this fun Class with creative dramatics which includes theatre games and improvisational exercises to help our students learn how to manage the fear of performing in front of others. After we create a safe environment in which to explore, we begin skill building and creating characters for the stage. We apply the character work in scenes appropriate for the student’s age. This session we will focus on scenes from "Alice in Wonderland", "Matilda", "Frozen", "Wiched", Cinderella", "Beauty & The Beast" & more! The end product of Acting 101 is that your child is introduced to the world of the stage learning skills through art that apply to every day life. And, most importantly, your child gains the confidence of speaking in front of others. Finally, after five weeks of training, we will have a showcase of the work that we explored in class to celebrate new found skills by our young actors.
Fall 2, 2018 Session Focus - "Concentration, Creating Characters, & Physical Acting for TV": We start the Class with creative dramatics which include performing on a stage while introducing the idea of circle of concentration which becomes an intro of acting in front of the camera. This class is a physical based class aimed towards children who are very active and could use an outlet. We create and work scenes that require very little words but very big actions. Scenes will be chosen for your child based on their skill level from a variety of kid’s TV shows. After we create this environment in which to explore an actors instrument, we begin skill building and creating characters for the camera. We apply the character work in scenes appropriate for the student’s age. Finally, after five weeks of training, we will have a showcase of the work that we explored in class to celebrate new found skills by our young actors.
