Kids Acting for Self-Expression

Acting for Self-Expression is open to kids ages 4 through 16. In weekly private sessions, we explore the art of performance through voice and body warm up, improv, paraphrase and personalization, animal work, sensory exploration and the luminous texts of William Shakespeare. We’ll cover principles of stage, screen, audition prep, some specific to the trade, and others applicable to all aspects of living and being. Articulation, improvisation, confidence and self-direction are all in the mix. Expect focus and fun.

Then expect to see expansion, 3-dimensional growth, imaginations ignited and gravitation toward center stage. Magnetism lives there.

To see my children come alive is one of the greatest gifts I know. Natane sparks a light in both my kids I’d never had the privilege of seeing before.

I love working with Natane because she has helped me grow in many ways as an actor. I look forward to all of the growth from working with Natane.

~ Andrew Beumer

My son has been taking acting and voice lessons from Natane for almost a year now and it has been such a blessing. We are truly so grateful for her presence in our family and look forward to many more years of working with her.
