Professional Drama & Modeling Instruction
This instruction employs the use of voice, body, and face for character development and creativity, improvisation, scene study, audition pointers, and monologues. Our drama techniques easily transfer over to everyday life.
Drama Techniques & Improvisation
Vocal exercises are taught to enhance both singing and speaking voices. Presentation of musical selections as well as monologues facilitate our performing skills. Corrections and suggestions are given to each student each day to better their presentation skills in front of the group.
This class involves basic stage blocking and direction as well as studies in characterization. Younger children work extensively with fun improvisations and basic stage directions. Projection and enunciation techniques are taught to all students. This is a great way for children to gain self-confidence, allowing them to trust their abilities.
Private Modeling Lessons
Students are instructed in both freestyle and Miss America pageant system modeling. Models learn T-formation runway techniques, stylistic differences between formal wear modeling, casual wear modeling, and print work. The course also provides portfolio pointers and presence and appearance training as well as choreographed routines for modeling competition and auditions. All instruction is private and by appointment only.
