Synetic Theater’s Teen Program is a highly selective and rigorous physical theater program for teenagers who are looking to pursue acting professionally during their middle or high school years. We are the preeminent studio for physical theater training in the greater Washington DC, Northern VA and Southern MD region. Our teen offerings include both classes & teen productions.
Synetic Teen Productions are a highly selective and physically intensive training program that results in a high quality, high energy professional level production at our Crystal City Theater. If cast, teens involved in these productions are asked to pay a participation fee and for this fee they work closely with professional directors, choreographers, fight choreographers, stage managers, light, costume and set designers. At the end of a 5-8 week rehearsal period teens have a fully staged, full length production.

From pop locking to plié, prat falls to parkour Advanced Movement Technique and Choreography is an intensive exploration in the dance styles and movement techniques used by Synetic to make theatre an eye popping, heart quickening, gravity defying experience for the audience and actor alike. Studying the principles of isolation, acceleration, and plasticity through dance, mime, parkour, martial arts, and acrobatics students expand their range of motion, flexibility, and daring while developing a vocabulary in corporeal expression that can be applied in devising original solo or ensemble performances.
Teen Street Theatre Intensive 2014
Creative collaboration to change your world!
Street Theater Intensive students will journey through the roots of performance to study the rich traditions of alternative theater for the public forum. Engaging the customs of commedia, disciplines of an integrated arts ensemble, and the metamorphoses of the spectator- actor, street theater is a vital and exciting means of honing one’s skills as an actor and citizen artist who uses their craft to empower their community and transform public spaces into arenas of artistic exchange and civic action through dramatic expression. This week long intensive immerses teen artists in the history and techniques of street theater, activating physical and verbal text in public spaces and inviting 21stcentury audiences to add their perspectives via social media. This one-week intensive course culminates in powerful image theatre creations, lazzis, and audience interactive works that travel from Crystal City to Freedom Plaza in Washington D.C. Led by senior Synetic Teachers and master artists from acclaimed dog and pony theater, Teen artists will join Synetic’s physical theater language with devised theater practices to create socially relevant performances.
