***The class script will be posted in the classroom after the first class. ***Each learner is required to download their script onto their desktop as soon as it is received. This is a very important step for the overall success of the class. This method works best on a laptop or desktop, working from iPads or Smartphones are not ideal for this course. ****Memorizing lines are not required for this course however; learners are asked to rehearse their lines between each class by reading their lines out loud with a friend or family member. ***Learners will use their scripts that have been downloaded on to their desktop as a guide during performance. The focus of the class is on text and character interpretation.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
***All learners participating in the course must have strong reading skills. ***This class is only scheduled early and mid-afternoon, Monday to Friday EST (Eastern Standard Time). Should you wish to enroll in one of our and after school courses, we recommend starting out with our Rising Star Acting Course Level- 1. ***Performing virtually does have limitations. As per Outschool’s policies, household members are welcome to watch their child perform live from afar and a comfortable distance from the actors device. Parents/family/friends are unable to join the zoom meeting and view the show. Household members are able to view the video, which will be posted in the classroom the next day. For your child’s safety, Outschool policies does not permit the video of the performance to be emailed or edited. ***The selected play chosen for this class will not exceed fifteen to twenty minutes in length. ***Auditioning for specific roles is not part of CTP's methodology. All parts will be assigned by the teacher and posted in the classroom after the first week of the course. Focus is spent on the techniques that are applied to the role and not the amount of lines or size of the part. ***A medium to large open space is required. Comfortable clothing such as athletic or dance attire works perfectly well. As for shoes, if your child is participating on a hard surface floor such as hardwood or tile, a pair of running shoes are recommended for proper support. Should your child be in a carpeted room, non-stick socks work. No prior stretching or warming up is required and water bottles are a must!
