On Camera for Teens – Ages 15 & 16

Prerequisites

  • Previous performance experience and/or training
  • If you are new to the industry we recommend that you take Acting for Beginners: Youth through Casting Central

Description

This class is mixed level and is appropriate for those who have begun to audition under real professional conditions as well as those who have had some on-set experience.

If you are newer to the industry, please consider our Youth Acting for Beginners class through Casting Central – Sign up for that HERE

Description

Specific drills and exercises have been created to introduce the student to the language and nature of performing for the camera. They will also learn how to become comfortable expressing real emotions and how to adapt to specific direction.  There are many young actors who train with us continuously from round to round.

For actors returning to the studio,  audition techniques geared more to the specific needs of the individual student will be introduced. More detailed script analysis involving how to make choices, identify and respond to different genres will come into play. Techniques will be introduced that allow more complex emotions to be expressed. The final class will be recorded and emailed to you along with notes from your instructor.

LB Acting Studio Youth Class Structure  has an AUDITION DAY. We have included this audition day to help advance the actors development.  The test of any actor’s training is the AUDITION, it challenges the actor, and measures their growth. Following the audition process there will also be a Q&A with the panel for actors & their parents. 

More details on the audition day can be found here in FAQ.

Our Youth Classes are categorized by age. However, children mature differently both physically and emotionally. They come to the studio with different levels of experience. We want the best environment for our students in each round. We, therefore, tailor our classes to the particular needs of those participating. Our small class sizes make it possible for coaches to be flexible and adapt to each student’s individual needs to ensure that the assigned material will challenge them appropriately and aid in their development.

Please Note: All Our Youth Classes are designed to create a training environment that is conducive to the way young people learn. There will be less talk and more on-camera time, since young people learn by doing, not listening.  Creative and challenging drills have been devised to be directly applicable to audition preparation, the audition, or an on-set situation. These drills can be practiced by young actors on their own during the week at home. Through clear instruction, application, and repetition, the student will experience results that will be tangible.

Youth classes may be mixed-level. Our small class sizes make it possible for coaches to focus on each student’s individual needs and development and assign material that will challenge them appropriately.
