When you watch television, do you think to yourself, ‘I could have played that character!’? Well, NOW YOU CAN! In our Acting for Television Bootcamp, actors perform scenes from some of their favorite popular tv shows on networks like Disney and Nickelodeon. Work on your comedic skills and learn to commit to your physical choices. Through improvisation and scene work, kids will improve upon skills such as character development, making distinct character choices, partner interaction, and comedic timing.
