Acting Camps – Summer Acting Camp for Teens
Enroll your teen in a summer acting camp, especially if her three favorite words are "lights, camera, action!" instead of "let's go shopping!"
Whether brooding Shakespearean prince-in-training or drama queen with a flair for theatrics, your son or daughter may find their passions and lose their inhibitions at acting camp.
Specializing in advanced, pre-professional studies or designed just to open the door to exploring the performing arts; acting camps can offer your child a glimpse into the worlds of drama and theater, movies and television. Acting camps provide the setting, often with professional quality instruction and facilities, to foster your child's talent or just plain enthusiasm for acting.
Acting camps can be found in locales all across the country, but many top quality camps that attract professional actors are found in or near the entertainment hubs of Hollywood and New York City.
A summer workshop can offer campers professional training in the theater, with activities revolving around the craft of acting through various techniques and improvisation games. Participants may have the opportunity to study comedy, stage combat, physical humor, timing and movement, voice and diction.
If your child is curious about musical theater, or has already developed a passion for the genre, expect to find many programs that will foster their interest and advance their abilities in singing, dancing and acting. Theater camps sessions may include one-on-one voice and performance workshops, and usually revolve around the production of a near-professional caliber musical from start to finish.
Some acting camps focus on a primary type of acting, geared to a child or teen who is striving to become or already is a professional actor. These camps, or sessions within a camp, offer training for just for television sitcom acting, or voice-over acting for animated features. Participants receive actual time being filmed in front of a camera while performing onstage. Sometimes even audition opportunities are included in the program. Industry professionals may drop by from time to time at one of these camps, hoping for the next big discovery!
Acting camp may set the scene for your child's future onstage – whether in Hollywood or his hometown!
