Winter Acting Camp 2019
For 12-17 Year Olds
Monday 1st to Friday 5th July 2019
What is Camp?
Camp is the most amazing experience a teenager can have. Surrounded with like-minded teens, who are as passionate about the performing arts as you are, you will be encouraged and stretched to increase your skills in acting and in life.
It is like a 5 day creativity party with 50 of your closest friends (that you may haven’t met yet)
It’s 5 days immersed in the Safety Net culture that the AAA has become famous for, noone pays anyone out, and everyone creates the safe space so you can take enormous creative risks in:
A 2-3 hour extended impro where you get given a character to play and build. Past camps, kids have found themselves on an alien ship, a magical castle, and pirate ship and while we have not released its name yet, the winter camp impro is going to be a western!!!
Places are strictly limited and. Camp often fills quicker than we can imagine. So book this one quickly.
IMAGINE a party with your favourite people, where you laugh, do things you love, and learn new skills.
A place where industry professionals come and visit and share their skills and generously answer your questions over a meal.
A place where everyone treats everyone else as equals, and you can take the biggest creative risks you have ever taken.
Well that is what acting camp is like. There are no words, you have to come and experience it for yourself.
A Typical Day:
Every day is exciting on camp. An average days starts with morning warm up, then breakfast. Then we rotate sessions teaching cutting edge skills, breaking for lunch and afternoon tea. We then have free time (which is sometimes used for rehearsal) and then dinner. Finally we have our night session, which is a mix of movement, performance outcomes from workshops or our favorite...the Extended Impro - where you play a character for up to 3 hours and you go to bed buzzing ready to wake up do it again.
Skills on Camp:
Each camp has new skills. They will be fun, expand your knowledge and be taught by people who are passionate. This camp will cover:
Characters through voice and movement.
The Hour of Power ( devising a play in an hour) Fast Filmmaking - write, act, edit, your own film!
Breaking down a script
Creating Emotional Realism
Extended Impro: You will be sent a character and given secrets and missions to act out over 3 hrs. Mind Blowing! The SUMMER CAMP EXTENDED IMPRO is being created as you read this with more details coming soon.
Each camp we are inundated with specialists who want to come and teach on camp. So don't be surprised if the above is added to, as new coaches are booked. We can guarantee, whatever happens you will be expanded and inspired.

Meet your coaches...
Brendan Glanville is the founding Artistic Director of the Australian Acting Academy. As an actor he has worked beside some of Australia's greats. He has devoted over 1/2 of his life in creating safe spaces for kids, teens and adults to connect with their abilities. Over 50 000 people have been in programs designed by Brendan, and he is respected as one of the best in the business when it comes to coaching kids and teens. Camps are his favourite AAA activity as he can see instant results in not only acting but a true sense of self. A master of characters and comedy, he knows how to make sure things are FUN. Brendan will be on the camp for the entire camp.
Former Australian Acting Academy student, Sheri Van Geest, currently uses her fourteen years of acting experience to teach the next generation of young actors, whilst also developing and creating content as a filmmaker. Sheri has a Bachelor of Fine Arts: Film, TV and New Media Production from QUT. She also has a certificate from UCLA School of Theatre, Film & Television from her time studying there on a short term exchange. Her first commercial reached over 30k views online and her university directorial debut Glitter is used as an example for the course. She is constantly working on a variety of projects, recently including two government road safety videos with Brendan Glanville. As a former camp goer turned teacher, it’s amazing to watch these talented kids experience the joy and freedom of self-expression that comes from five days living in the safety net.
Ryan Sheldrake started at the AAA when he was only 8. He was identified quickly for his high intellect, quick wit and love of comedy. He stayed at the Academy and completed the prestigious school of excellence, before going to university. Ryan is the gold standard for diversification. He teachers Latin Dance, Martial Arts, Fire Twirling, and has just completed his Law Degree. Add to that we challenge anyone who can come close to his Gollum impression. Ryan is equal parts whacky and heart based sensitive. He loved all the camps he attended, and is writing the extended improvisation THE SHOW MUST GO ON for camp, to make sure camp is every bit as exciting and fun for you as it was for him. Ryan will be on the camp for the entire camp.
