Our schedules have been disrupted. This summer will be different.

We understand the mindset of a young performing artist. We've been there. In many cases, acting and performing is their only outlet. No matter what, they deserve a safe, creative place where they can continue to nurture their passion.

While we understand the huge amount of on-line learning your children have already experienced, The Actors Ensemble believes student artists must remain active, focused, enriched and challenged. The summer of 2020 should be no different!

Our tried and tested on-line curriculum has been designed specifically for high school and college performing arts students as they continue to work on their craft from the safety of their own home.

This six-week program covers stage and camera acting, preparation, discipline, professionalism and how to tap into personal rhythms with the computer as the lens!


  • Sessions are four hours long | Two days-a-week | 48 hours of instruction

  • Small class sizes for individual instruction

  • The future: Viral learning for actors | Adjusting to new technical aspects

  • The computer becomes the camera: Auditioning | Self-taping | Monologue | Scene work

  • Application of the stylistic and technical demands of camera performance

  • Listening and reacting | Devotion to details | Working collaboratively in a viral setting        

  • Communication skills | Acting is Behavior

  • Notes and adjustments | All sessions are recorded and shared with the students
