WHAT IS TERM 1 ALL ABOUT?

Come Try Out Our Teens Acting Classes Brisbane

Term 1: The Core of Acting is an eight week term that focuses on helping your teen discover that they have true value as a creative in the world. That their creativity, while quirky at times, is a gift. When they develop the Core Skills of Acting it will positively change their life. Through using their mind, voice and body, they will re-discover play, enhance creative thinking, and develop self expression through performance. There is nothing better than seeing a young person, after just a couple of lessons, hold their head up high, demonstrating new skills and a new found confidence. If you are looking for somewhere for your teen to feel like they fit, and are worth it, then these classes are for you. It is a fun filled, exciting term, building skills for life. Here is a snapshot of what you will experience at the classes:

Building The
Safety Net

A big focus in all of our classes is the Safety Net Philosophy. Your teen will be joining their classmates in agreeing to totally support each other, to create safe places to take creative risks. We hear from some families that this is the first time that they have experienced anything this supportive. 

Improvisation

Every great actor has, in one way or another, developed a strong ability to improvise. It allows your teen to approach any scene, play or role with spontaneity, intrigue, and without fear. Thinking spontaneously without a script is one of the most challenging and rewarding skills your teen could master.

Creating
Character

To build a believable character we first need to know a way in. Your teen will be shown how to develop character using the ancient art of acting archetypes. This unit was written specifically for the AAA, allowing your teen to play with new ways to create, sustain & have fun with original characters.

Story Telling

All great stories follow a structure, even improvised stories. Once your teen begins to master these structures, they will greatly increase their story telling ability. At first it will be challenging, but as we laugh our way through the blocks, new & masterful stories await at the end of term.

Expanding what is Creatively Possible

A wonderful moment awaits your teen this term. It may happen week 1, or in week 8 but it will happen. The penny will drop for them that anything is possible when using creativity and commitment. When they feel safe enough to overcome their own doubts and step into possibility - that is a magical moment.

Develop 
Self-Confidence

You will experience first hand why we are seen as the experts in encouraging confidence in young people. Your teen will be encouraged, no matter what their level, to keep growing, and keep extending. You’ll find they will apply this new found confidence and growth to  their acting but more importantly it will flow into all areas of life.

Strengthen Quick Thinking Skills

One thing this term does is develop your teen’s ability to think on the spot. As they understand and navigate lateral right brain thinking, they will unlock their creative potential. The ability to think on your feet is an incredible life skill for all actors. It is equally one of the best skills for all successful people no matter what career path they take.

Take Back
Creative Power

The core word for this term is EMPOWERMENT. Your teen will be on stage making stories, sounds, shapes, and choices they’ve never made before. This will give them a tremendous sense of pride, achievement and joy. Above all, it will let your creative teen feel valuable as a creative person. They will have found their tribe.

Acting Is Just The Tip Of The Iceberg 

It is no secret that the Australian Acting Academy is Brisbane’s Best Acting School for kids and teens. It isn’t so much what we do that makes this so, it is how we do it.

You and your teen will discover that personal development underpins everything we do at the AAA. Not in an overt way, but your teen will be treated as an equal. They will be shown kindness and respect from the word go, and welcomed into our community. Teens need to be guided how to be part of a team, or ensemble, and that they don’t need to fight to be the best. Knowing that they are only competing with themselves, is a huge relief for them. This sense of belonging will increase their focus and general contentment in life.

All ideas are heard, and your teen will feel valued because of this. When performing, all roles are shared in relation to what the story needs. As over 90% of our outcomes are student created, this is very easy to do. Creative teens love to create. Finding a tribe of like minded people to do it with, creates bliss and builds a healthy sense of self belief.

The classes are designed to extend even the most experienced students, and once a year, students who show a strong aptitude for the creative arts, plus a keenness to learn, have the chance to audition for our extension classes. These classes are next level, and keep extending students right up until they are ready to be part of the industry or audition for further studies.

Creativity is a vital life skill. We are seeing a decline in creativity being valued in our school system, so we exist to make sure all creative kids and teens feel that their gifts have a valuable role in society. Acting is just the tip of a very big iceberg.

What our AAA Family has to say...

One of the best days was when my son came home from his Australian Acting Academy class; we were just going about our general business and without prompting he said, "Mum, I love it at AAA. When I'm there, I really feel like; like 'ME'.
- Jo Behlau (parent)
The Australian Acting Academy is amazing. From to classes to camps I have found a safe place and a family to express my creative side. I have learnt so much with the AAA and really did have the best 5 days of my life on camp. I would 100% recommend the AAA to any aspiring actors and artists looking to take their skills to the next level and find not just a house, but a home.
- Louis Boland (student)

The team at AAA are outstanding! They go above and beyond to help each child reach their full potential. From weekly classes, extension and camps I cannot fault them. My daughter just got back from her first camp. The positive impact 4 days has had on her is amazing. I could go on and on with how happy I am with the care she received and friends she made, and the fun she had.

- Jo Trull (Parent)
My son has been going to the AAA classes for a few years now and loves them more than ever. He has just returned from the spring camp, which was of course, awesome. I think he talked non-stop for 24 hours about the activities, the people, the fun etc and immediately wanted me to book the summer camp! AAA provide such a warm, nurturing environment for all involved that ensures that each child shines and goes from strength to strength. Thanks so much to Brendan, Kareena and the team for all your hard work.
- FionA CURRAN (Parent)
Our daughter loves her Acting Classes with the Australian Acting Academy. I've never seen her face light up as much as when she talks about her classes and what they did.
- Madonna dunn (parent)
