YOUNG ARTISTS. MADE IN THE HUDSON VALLEY.
Shadowland Academy offers classes for youth in many aspects of the theatre arts, including acting, voice, movement, stagecraft and writing. Through study students develop a deeper appreciation of literature and the performing arts, as well as, improve their understanding of the human condition. Our classes instill the important of both group and individual responsibility, enhancing our students ability to work well within a group and to strive independently.
Our Acting Academy features classes for varying levels of ability, primarily based on age and experience. The classes are broken down to suit the students’ needs. Please note that the students must be old enough to read to start participation in the Academy.
Students learn the basics of set building and technical theatre. Under the guidance of Shadowland’s technical director, students will have a hands-on experience creating the building blocks of scenic designs, and proper use of the tools of the trade.
Throughout the year, the Academy offers a wide variety of master classes in voice, movement, musical theatre, improvisation and playwriting. This year, we’ll even offer a class for adults.
