AGES 7-11 yrs. Study the craft of acting in front of the camera, with scene study and commercial improv. Action packed and information overload. Register early to avoid disappointment
Acting, voice and movement are incorporated into weekly classes where professional coaches inspire and motivate kids on a voyage of self discovery. Through improv we encourage kids to think quickly and communicate effectively. Theatre games are used for further understanding when working as an individual or as a team.
Classes cover scene study, script analysis for the stage and screen. Solid audition skills and character development are taught which form a solid foundation for a child who enjoys performance.
Specialized instructors introduce students to actual film production. Basic fundamental skills are explored in a safe and nurturing environment. There is a career development component for parents of children interested in careers in film that is held quarterly.
All of these aspects are essential in encouraging students to gain self esteem and confidence.
This is a guaranteed fun-packed, high-energy ongoing class that begins as an exploratory experience that has lead to discovering young stars of the stage and screen.
The performance aspect of our school is in the Film Camps which take place during the school year at Spring Break, Summer, Halloween and Christmas. Students are encouraged to participate in Film Camps to exercise and showcase their talent. Having fun and learning skills for life is the primary focus, however some students will eventually seek representation by a licensed Talent Agent in BC. Spotlight instructors will encourage this when the student is ready. This process is part of a journey, and that journey for working actors is ongoing.
Spotlight Academy has been in business in Nanaimo for over 20 years.
Generally there is a wait list for these fun, high energy professional classes. Priority is given to returning students and new students who join the wait list with a deposit or payment in full.
