Acting & Improv in English for KIDS 10-14: Act & Fun! with Paula // Tuesdays (from January)

“Acting is not about being someone different. It’s finding the similarity in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there.” – Meryl Streep

BASICS OF ACTING & IMPROV for KIDS IN A FUN WAY!

In this course for Kids (ages 10-14 )with Paula we will learn acting and improvisation lessons that can be useful on and off stage. Games, quick thinking, breathing and concentration training, group work and interdisciplinary activities will be our tools on this path. Through exercises and small practices we will advance in the amazing world of theater, going from classic to contemporary, making this an incredible experience for everyone involved. Personal growth and fun walking together to success!

Performance possibilities: Act Attack’s main goal is the learning process and not so much the presentation. Also, 8 weeks is really small amount of time to prepare something. But if they all like the 1st course we can do a more advanced level that will focus on preparation for a graduation show ✨

Should I choose Acting or Improv?

What’s the difference between Acting and Improv Theater? Acting and Improv theater are both forms of performance and have similarities, but they also have some key differences:

WHAT IS ACTING
Acting is a structured process of interpreting and portraying a character/role in a scripted play or film. Actors are given a script to work with and deliver it as authentically as possible. They are expected to memorise lines and blocking, and to create a believable and consistent portrayal of a character over the course of a performance. This also involves a creative exploration of physicality and character voices.

WHY ACTING
Acting teaches you how to express & perform a character/role physically in an honest and confident way, in many different situations, and helps you connect deeper with the emotions and thoughts of a character/role.
———————————————————————————————
WHAT IS IMPROV
Improv is a more unstructured process of creating a scene without any script. Participants have to get out of their comfort zones, think on their feet and tap into spontaneity while performing. Improv actors typically work with minimal preparation or planning, and they are expected to create characters, dialogue and action on the spot, often in response to suggestions or prompts from the audience or other performers. There may be a lot of fun, laughter and camraderie in the process.

WHY IMPROV
Improv helps you connect deeper with others in a more authentic & empathetic way; be more creative, think on your feet and tap into your spontaneity and your playful inner-child.

*******************************************************************************
Both Αcting and Ιmprov theater can be useful tools for developing acting skills and building confidence on stage, but they are different techniques that require different approaches and skill sets. Both Acting and Improv can improve your listening and communication skills and level up your ability to actively and openly communicate with the world around you!

What happens if I miss 1-2 classes? Can I get a credit/refund?

ATTENDANCE
We understand that work & personal life is different for everyone and can be challenging to fully commit. Each student must attend at least 70% of each course (either 5/7, either 6/8, either 7/9 classes). Regular attendance will ensure a positive group dymamic as well as providing the student with increased opportunities to partake in pair- and group activities. It is beneficial for a student to commit to attending the majority of the lessons in a course to ensure his/her personal growth. Each succeeding lesson will build on the skills and activities of the previous lesson. If a student is absent or late in more than 2 group classes per course without a valid notice, then unfortunately he/she/they will not be eligible to continue the course, as this can significally affect the balance and the dynamics of the group.
REFUNDS/CREDITS FOR CLASSES MISSED
We sell packages of 5-6-7-8 classes only, so you can either pay 1 trial or the full course/package. However, we sometimes do exceptions (only depending on availability) and can give you a discount on the full course if you know in advance that you will miss some classes! 🙂

What are the discounts Act Attack offers?

Our goal is to always have affordable prices, so that everyone can benefit from theater. However, we also offer several discounts and gifts:
– ”Loyalty discount”: is the discount given to students who booked and completed 2 or more courses (for example at least 1 beginner + 1 intermediate course or at least 2 different beginner courses). The amount of the discount can be between 10 and 25 euros per person depending on the season, the city and the course. Furthermore, if you booked and completed 3 or more classes, apart from the loyalty discount we will soon give you a special gift 🙂
– ”Bring a friend” discount: is the discount given to a student who booked & completed a course, and also recommend us a friend who also booked and completed a course with us. The amount of the discount can be between 10 and 15 euros total depending on the season, the city and the course.
Discounts cannot be combined.

What is a graduation certificate?

It is a graduation proof given by Act Attack to the students who joined a complete course (beginners & intermediates) or 2 different courses. It is given upon request and as a PDF document. 

What else is included?

  • -> Focused and fun curricula from our experienced teachers
  • -> Personal feedback from our teachers
  • -> Classes of 12 people max
