Students will be immersed in a stimulating, comprehensive curriculum of acting methodology, musical theater, improvisation, auditioning, scene study and scene work, along with opportunities to study dance and vocals in a safe, supportive and non competitive arena. Furthermore, AAC is a great way for the older and or less experienced student interested in learning more about the performing arts to prepare for more sophisticated learning and performing opportunities at the academy or elsewhere.
