Program Description

During the pandemic, BARCLAY Performing Arts was faced with the same question that all Performing Arts Centers were burdened with, “Do we stay open or close?” Well, in case you are just joining our family, we stayed open and are proud to say that we are here today, bigger and better than ever, because of it. In that time, we (like so many other businesses) had to transform everything we have, do and did into a digital platform…somehow. One of the first things we did, was our Acting Classes. Some things took a little time to find its groove, but Acting took the sky and never looked back. We have instructors that have not only professional training in Theatre, but in Film as well, and so, our Head of our Acting Department, Om Jae, created this hybrid of Where Theatre Meets Film! The rest, is history. Performing Arts Training usually reaches some bumpy parts in the road when you are trying to combine multiple skills, but sometimes…they merge together and catalyze into an amazing NEW art form! TWEEN ACTING is a perfect example of this. This is a completely original curriculum (as is everything we do) and is the first of its kind. The best part, is that it serves the greatest need that BARCLAY’s mission has been since it has opened: to be a safe place to bring people together to connect, love and make the world a better place. Kids have been working after class, even having phone calls and FaceTimes to practice scenes together before they come to class next week, inadvertently making friends and not feeling the literal distance between them. One of the proudest feats we have, is bringing kids out of their shell and finding others who share their Weird! At BARCLAY, we have reclaimed the word ‘weird’ to mean “unique beauty”. This class is meant for expression, creativity, and connection. It also equips kids with skills in both Theatre Performance and Film Acting, heavily preparing them for auditions or future careers in either. Everything surrounds the curriculum, which is to uncover and allow kids to be their true selves in a safe, structured way that builds confidence, joy and connectedness. There is a reason this class has the numbers is does. Come, see what all the hype is about. Join the family. Sign up today!
