Ages 14-18

School-Year Teens Classes


Our Teens classes are a school-year round professional-training acting classes. Verve will assist students ready to seek representation or work at the conclusion of the school year class.

The classes meets every week for 90-minutes and provide Teens a place to learn and implement acting technique.  Curriculum includes Technique, Script Analysis, Commercials, Improv, Film and On-Camera presence work, and the practicality of The Business (local agents, casting directors).  This class is essential for students wishing to get agency representation as well as for those who already have representation.

Students will work individually in monologues, exercises and improvs, as well as be partnered up for scene and on-camera scene work. The difficulty of materials will be assigned based on experience of the actor so beginning, intermediate and advanced actors will all excel in this class.

Saturday Workouts  

If you are not actively working on a film or theatre project, you should be in class! If you are signed with an agent, you should be in class! (In fact, many actually require it!) Join us Saturday mornings for fun, educational workouts for students ages 8-18 designed to keep your skills in tip-top shape. These are designed to enhance ongoing training as well as supplement for those not able to commit to a weekly class. New to Verve? Great; we'll get you up to speed and you'll get the basics under your belt in no time. Returning students are always welcome; we select new scripts each workout!
