FLINT — Students can build on their passion for theatre with Winter Acting Classes at Flint Youth Theatre. Winter Acting Classes meet for eight weeks beginning Jan. 13 and are offered for students age two through grade 12.
Class fees range from $70 to $95. Registration and information are available by calling 810-237-1530. Registrations are also accepted in person at FYT, 1220 East Kearsley Street, in the Flint Cultural Center. Complete class descriptions and registration forms are available at FlintYouthTheatre.org. Ambassador Michael Wood and Judy Wood are the inagural Susan D. Wood Drama School Sponsor.
Winter Acting Classes provide a range of experiences for students. The younger students, age two through grade four, are guided in using their natural creative impulses, and in shaping them for short performances. Older students, grades five through twelve, are taught the skills they will need to breathe life into dynamic and believable characters, preparing them for the demands of a complete live performance. Regarding the experience of performing at the end of the eight week term, a Drama School student commented, “It is an amazing feeling to walk onto a stage and perform in front of people. All of your hard work pays off and everyone can enjoy it with you.”
Drama School classes culminate in a performance for family and friends on the final day. Tuition Assistance is available through the Susan D. Wood Tuition Assistance Fund.
The application deadline for Winter Classes is Dec. 16. A form is available by calling 810-237-1530 or at FlintYouthTheatre.org.
