Dramatic Arts Program

Our Dramatic Arts Program (DAP) is a very emotional and intense six month full-time course. Its purpose is to give students a solid foundation of acting principles. It is designed to challenge actors to achieve their highest potential. Tools learned range from script analysis, character research, audition skills and scene work to improvisation, voice, movement/body, and on-camera techniques which will all be needed for your demo reel project.
