Starting today, actress and acting instructor Lana Young leads a 6-week acting class for aspiring performers ages 6-8 at the Virginia Discovery Museum. Children learn how to perform while exploring their imagination in a safe and fun environment. Fun and focused exercises teach children how to listen to their scene partners and build communication skills. They will learn basic stage technique, how to break down scripts, and how to find their objective as the character. The goal–-teaching life skills through acting–-is to build self-esteem and confidence while showing children how to find truth in a character. Registration required. On the east end of the Downtown Mall. 977-1025, ext. 9.
