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!

Kids Camp Tweens Camp Teens Camp

Film acting camp: youth actors will not only learn about acting on film, they will act on film! From auditions to wrapping the production, actors go through the entire process of participating in a digital short film, all in an educational, instructional and fun environment. Learn character development, acting skills, camera technique and the differences and similarities between stage and film acting. Each camp is limited to 10 participants; the script is custom written for the students enrolled. A digital copy of the completed short film will be provided to the student after the conclusion of the camp. A screening of the completed film will be held in July; participants will select the day. Verve has been offering this camp for 11 years and it is led by professional filmmakers and actors. Some of the past films are available for viewing on the Verve Studios' YouTube Channel. Film Acting Camps are in June.

Our Youth classes are a school-year round professional-training acting classes. The class meets every week for 90-minutes and provides Young Actors 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. Verve will assist students ready to seek representation or work at the conclusion of the school year class.
