Term Classes

Our SDS Youth Term Classes provide young people interested in acting and presenting early access to professional skills and screen techniques.

Not only will students engage in improvisation and text-based exercises, but they’ll learn practical skills to develop their understanding of working on screen. This will Include such things as unraveling a script, taking direction, building a character and working with others to make a scene work, as well as exercises to develop presenting skills and confidence in audition preparation.

Just like playing a sport, each term builds on what’s been learned in the last. This allows young students to refine their skills and develop confidence more and more with each term.
