Our Back to Basics class is a NEW & EXCITING experience for Spring, 2022! This is an all-abilities class designed to get back to the basics. Whether a beginner or a veteran actor, this opportunity is sure to be a fan favorite. We will offer a wide variety of theatre games, skits, songs, line dances, and more. Our usual sessions of Movin' & Groovin', Actors in Action, and even our youth, teen and adult improv curriculum will be combined for a unique experience, where the pressure of putting on a big show is off and the focus is on what Acting Antics is really about.
Knowing that every actor's life is unique, we are taking inclusivity to the next level. With respect to each of our actor's diverse needs, we are adapting this new class to make it engaging, educational, and most of all, fun for everyone!

(Elementary age) This program is designed to help children with social difficulties learn skills about interacting with peers, reading body language and other non-verbal cues, voice modulation, and understanding abstract language and inferences. It is important that youngsters in this group are cognitively able to work on abstract concepts in communication. Actors have a great time with building their self-esteem. The camp will include theatre games and activities, scenes and skits with a final performance for family and friends on the last day of class.

Activities, scenes, and skits will be showcased in final performances for family and friends on the last day of class.
(Ages 7 - adult) In this exciting, inclusive program, participants with differences, siblings, and friends will rehearse and perform a 30-minute musical production. Actors learn to work together, remember cues, do movement to music, and perform a finished product. Actors participate in scene painting and making props.
