Springtime invites a sense of discovery, beauty, and new ideas. Gather your mystical crystal ball, mount your valiant steed and join your friends at Synetic Studio for a world of enchantment and wonder. Elementary Adventures in Acting: Fairytale connections develops vocal, motor, and social skills as students work with one another in discovering the connections between fairytales from around and the globe and even create their own legendary world complete with greedy goblins, beautiful princesses, a house made out of sweets, frolicking mermaids, happy endings and so much more! Through theatre games, improvisations, story construction, costuming and prop design, each young artist puts their imagination into action as they re-create classic fairytales while heightening physical awareness, learning to actively listen, and building confidence.

Acting isn’t only about pretending to be someone else, or wearing awesome costumes. Though that’s fun too! Acting can be a path of self-discovery and creative empowerment. Get to know your body and yourself better while developing confidence, artistic process and community in an encouraging, high-energy environment. Using theater games, movement exercises and acrobatics as a launching board, Synetic Middle School Acting and Movement Technique introduces students to the fundamentals of contemporary acting style with an emphasis on creating the physical life of a character. Students will develop a process for transforming dramatic literature into realistic human behavior for the stage, explore presence, and gain fundamental stage acting technique.
