Atlantic Theater Company & Atlantic Acting School
New York, NY 10011
The After School program is a great introduction to storytelling, writing, acting and improvisation. The Atlantic philosophy of ensemble and our commitment to creating your own work is deeply rooted in the creative acting experience for all age groups. The younger children create characters and stories through creative play and improvisational exercises while older children are introduced to the Atlantic Technique as they approach their first scene work and monologues. All classes culminate in a workshop performance at the end of each semester. Students spend their summer days forming a theater ensemble and rehearse a performance project or play. Each program culminates in a final workshop presented to an audience of family and friends. Younger students weave theater, music and theater related arts and crafts together as they learn about different styles of performance. Young Creators rehearse an adapted musical play and put it on its feet for an audience in two weeks. Young Actors explore technique, scenes and monologues and create their own mini commercial film project. Teens delve into a four-week pre-college intensive that prepares them for the exciting rigors of theater conservatory training and life.
