Our Joy of Acting classes have been specially designed for students with high functioning autism, Asperger's syndrome and other social cognition delays, although we welcome neuro-typical actors as well! Instructors provide students with top quality instruction in a positive, rewarding environment with a short presentation for family and friends at the end of each semester.
The exciting, fast-paced classes focus on the development of social skills through the use of wild and crazy theatre games! Improvisation and comedy will be used to discover each student's unique abilities and to provide an exciting and supportive environment in which to learn key social skills such as reading body language, perspective taking, and understanding and expressing emotions.
We look forward to helping your child discover the joy of acting in their own unique way!
