SCENES is the newest class offered at VOCE. It is open to all 9th – 12th grade actors. This class focuses on training the singer-actor. Often, the only time a student can gain acting experience is when they are cast in a show, but first, they have to be cast!
We often see that in order to gain experience, you need experience! VOCE wants to provide young thespians with the training and experience they need. As a student in this class you will work with De’Marcus Monroe, our Stage Acting Coach, and Lori Van Lenten, Artistic Director and Vocal Coach. You learn how to develop character, handle work on a monologue and with a scene partner, how to create a quality self tape, audition preparation and more. Each student will perform songs and scenes and will be challenged to learn and understand the character of each. Our performance will not be a complete show, but rather, a showcase of our singer-actors. We will create a video that will be available after the session ends. Each session is 8 weeks and will have a specific focus. If you need to miss a class, you will be able to view the virtual session, although live feedback is always best in performance practice.
WE WILL ONKLY ACCEPT 10 STUDENTS FOR THIS SESSION! Please watch the video on our front page to see how we are taking precautions during COVID.
Classes will meet from 10:00-11:30am on Saturdays October 3, 10, 17, 24, 31 and November 7, 14, and 21st. The video showcase will be available for viewing after Thanksgiving.
