Rising Stars Youth Acting Group
Rising Stars is a fun learning experience that teaches stage and life skills through games and activities, individual coaching, and actual performances on the Capitol Stage. The program focuses on developing the students’ own creativity, building self-confidence, improving reading comprehension and speaking ability, accepting responsibility, and teamwork.
Students will learn stage movement, character development, how to audition, and a whole lot more! Skills developed will better prepare students to compete for roles in school plays and other local stage productions, as well as interacting with confidence during pageants, interviews for college or jobs, and in everyday dealings with teachers and peers.
Classes are taught by professional actor and director Janet Foote. Mrs. Foote also taught theatre arts at the high school level and has conducted seminars and workshops for Fibonacci STEAM, BOCES, local theater groups, Girl Scouts, and at area schools.
