Do you want to improve your acting skills in a fun and dynamic atmosphere this summer?

If so, check out our 2018 Acting Camp!

Acting Camp focuses on specific acting methods and techniques that can be used on stage, in commercials, on TV episodes, and in the movies. Campers learn the importance of being natural, using improvisation, tips and tricks for memorizing lines, interpreting their character’s psyche, fulfilling the writer’s intent while also making it their own, and so much more!  Campers also learn the importance of working organically with other actors and actresses, using teamwork, and playing off each other to bring the performance to life!  Campers inherently learn confidence, how to work well with others, and appreciation for acting in general.

Because acting is not a required course at school, this camp may open up a new interest for a camper or cultivate an existing one.  In addition, Acting Camp focuses more on performances with just a few actors, allowing for highly individualized instruction and a bigger role in each performance – a great supplement to our very popular Theater Camps. For campers with acting experience, this camp is a great opportunity to learn a lot more about acting and hone techniques.

After completing this camp, one of the goals is for our campers to be more comfortable speaking and performing in public. This camp is a great opportunity for self-exploration, challenging yourself, and bringing out the best in you!

Acting Camp provides a unique, fun, and transformative summer experience with lessons our campers can carry for a lifetime.

Upon registration, please include a short note about your child’s level of experience during online registration.

On Friday at 3pm, campers will perform a scene of their choosing at our Live Performance… parents are invited to attend!

See you “on stage” this summer!

All Campers receive a Lavner Camps t-shirt!
