ATNY offers the opportunity to participate or audit actor training days. If you’d like to participate on any given Wednesday, this is it. Drop into one of our weekly Wednesday classes and get a sample of the ATNY experience! This is a great option for those who wish to just feel things out, or those who simply can’t commit to more than a day or two in any given semester.
We kindly ask you bring or request material by email before you attend. If you’d like to simply ‘watch’ or ‘audit’ classes, this is free, as it is non-participation. You may audit even if the class is full, as you’ll be a fly on the wall, though you are required to have your camera on at all times.
There are classes every Wednesday until March 27, so just pick a day and register! We will determine which timeslot to place you in based on your age. Once you register, ATNY will reach out to arrange the specific date that works best for you to drop in. Any questions, give us a call!
About the Class:
Whether it’s their first time in front of the camera or they already have some on-set experience under their belts, kids will always be influenced by the shows they see on TV, or by whatever goes viral on a seemingly daily basis. This can often mislead the younger viewers to think that hamming it up for the camera is more entertaining than being truthful and organic in your expression.
Our On-Camera class explores the fundamentals of honest and truth-centered acting through a variety of comedic and dramatic monologues and scenes. We work on the basics of dissecting a script, identifying beats, transitions and operative words, in order to infuse passion to what we say, rather than blandly recite it. We’ll explore the different genres of dramatic vs. comedic acting, all based in truth and understanding of moments.
We take a gradual approach towards internalizing the scripted copy in such way that the actors aren’t just talking to the camera, but actually reaching through the lens and making meaningful connections. A must for auditioning actors!
