Acting Out! Drama Classes

Acting Out! Drama Classes

Acting Out! is the community outreach program from the award-winning UNCSA School of Drama, offering classes in Acting, Musical Theatre and Tap and Musical Theatre/Jazz Dance, as well as private voice instruction.

Instructors include UNCSA faculty members and alumni, with the same caliber of instruction as our high school and undergraduate programs. We seek to empower students to make a work of art meaningful by noticing the space between the words and notes on the page and you.

The various classes will focus on learning and honing the skills of theatre as a process versus merely driving toward a product of performance and will culminate in a showcase of skills learned over the term. These skills will not only build your confidence as an actor, but as a citizen of our world.

New Opportunities

Acting Out is offering a new level of classes called PLUS! The PLUS program is intended to offer new challenges in Acting and Musical Theatre to students who already have experience. Students will be accepted to PLUS classes based on a placement audition. Depending on experience and skill level, PLUS students will work at a more accelerated pace than the fundamental Acting Out! classes.

New auditioned dance classes are also offered in Intermediate Tap, Advanced Tap and Musical Theatre/Jazz dance.
