Teen Intensive

This class takes place in person at our Los Angeles studio and is taught by Becky Cloe and Gina Simms!

It is open to LA based actors ages 15+ and is also great for those who live outside the LA area and wish to make a trip out. This class is geared toward professional actors who play high school aged roles, but is great for those new to acting as well.

The teen Scene Study Intensive covers the following:
– Rehearsal techniques and performance
– Script analysis and breaking down a scene
– Memorization techniques
– Scene study
– Preparing a role

The studio provides a wide range of furniture and set pieces for young actors to create an authentic on set or on stage experience. Actors will learn the key elements to mastering physical life and how to be fully alive in the given circumstances- being real. Focus is put on the fundamentals of working moment to moment, identifying and fixing individual acting habits, and partnered work.

This class meets for 3 consecutive afternoons Friday-Sunday, with an optional technique-based class taking place on Thursday.

TIME: 3:30pm-7:30pm PT

DATES:
Friday— July 19
Saturday— July 20
Sunday— July 21

Thursday— July 18 (*optional add-on class)

Cost for 3-Day Intensive (Friday-Sunday) – $365.00

Optional Add-On Technique Class:
An entire class focused on technique. This add-on class is a great way to start the intensive and ensure you get the most out of the full course. While partnered scene work is reserved for Friday-Sunday, this one-day class dives deep into the craft and allows each actor to focus on key elements of their technique.
Actors will learn:
– Methods for accessing emotions in scene work
– Personalization techniques
– Warm-up practices for performance
– How to handle nerves
– How to “be in the moment” and work off another actor

In this add-on class, actors will specifically work on personalization and finding deep emotional connection to their assigned scene study roles. Therefore it’s an excellent class for even our most experienced actors. We highly encourage ALL intensive participants to partake, but it is particularly essential for students new to our studio.

Cost for Add-On Technique Class (Thursday) – $75.00

THE REQUIREMENTS:
This class is designed for teen actors age 15+. Students will be asked to complete homework outside of class each day. While this homework is minimal, some outside preparation is required. This includes working on and memorizing short scripts, picking out their character’s wardrobe, and bringing in personal props.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
This is an intensive by nature. The work is challenging, but the class is a ball! Students should come prepared to dive in and work hard, but know there will be lots of fun as well!

ABOUT OUR YOUTH PROGRAM:
Howard Fine Youth fosters a safe environment to create, imagine, and learn all the elements of acting on a professional level. Our curriculum is student focused, family friendly, age appropriate, and emotionally sound. We value mental health in our students and teach strategies to navigate the industry and the craft, so they can work independently and feel confident.

WHAT SETS US APART:
Much of what is taught in youth acting classes today, are tricks and tips instead of a lasting craft.

Our sights are set MUCH higher!

Howard Fine Youth teaches the same award-winning approach our studio is known for, but in an age appropriate way meant for actors who play high school aged roles. Here, actors will learn and hone a respectable way of working in the industry. They will gain a professional skill set and understand what’s expected of them on stage or set.

CAN PARENTS WATCH?
Our intensive is closed to parents and outside guests. We follow the same teaching principles that Howard established years ago with the adult program. Learning this craft is a process and requires the artist to risk making mistakes and fully let go and explore. This is near impossible to do when you are in “performance mode.” Performing live for an audience should come after plenty of rehearsal and practice and is not something we believe should be part of the developmental process of the craft. That said, there may be opportunities in the future for our students to show off some fully rehearsed work. Stay tuned!!!
