The ACT Academy is open to any young person who wants to grow as a performing artist. From September – December 2020, the Academy workshops will be offered, free of charge, as a combination of virtual and in-person workshops. The Academy is where young people discover their passion for excellence, a desire to succeed, a positive attitude and a willingness to overcome personal barriers. We are looking for young people between the ages 12 – 18 who want to better themselves at acting, singing, dance and storytelling.
NO AUDITION is necessary for admittance. Class sizes are smaller to allow for a more intensive and productive atmosphere. Academy members will work individually as well as in group. The motto of the Academy is, “Be your best self so you live your best life as a citizen of the world”.
