Acting with Rae

Youth and Teen Acting class

As an experienced actress and director, I’m excited to bring my popular children’s acting program to Choreography by Rae. Having taught acting programs in public schools, you would be amazed at how quickly young actors can blossom in a short amount of time. This 12 week program covers acting technique, character development, and script analysis. Whether your child loves theater, television, or film they are sure to love this fun new program at Choreography by Rae.

Students will have the option to participate in a production of Alice in Wonderland in June. Participation in the production is not mandatory, but all actors in the show must also be registered in the class.
