Spotlight Academy is thrilled to be launching our free Acting 101 for Stage. This is an essential skills course for gifted children with needs aged eight to 14 years.
Acting 101 is our Pay Back Program. Spotlight will offer scholarships to deserving applicants as we begin celebrations of almost 20 years of business excellence in Nanaimo.
The Spotlight Scholarship program will utilize the skills of all faculty members but the inaugural program will be taught by Nicole Busby a professional actress who teaches drama within the Nanaimo school system. All essential acting techniques will be covered, including: voice, movement, improv, scene study and monologue performance. A final performance for family and friends is included.
On Oct 20th from 3 to 5:30 pm we will be hosting auditions/interviews for gifted kids in need.
The program is open to all kids who prove a level of talent but don't have the usual support system that a regular family might have or are experiencing some of life's trials at an early age. To qualify, the applicant will need to attend an interview, perform a short audition (of an assigned scene) and fill out an application form telling us a little about themselves.
Successful applicants will be notified by phone or e mail. Selections will be based upon a demonstration of passion and an eagerness to learn. We are excited to launch this program and give back to the community.
The course will run from Oct 7 to Dec 2 on Fridays between 3.30 and 5.30 pm at Hub City Cinema Society, 15 Lois Lane in Downtown Nanaimo.
