Are you living with a future Seth MacFarlane, Penelope Cruz or Chris Rock? Is your child fascinated by performing or making films? If so, The Michelle Danner Acting Studio’s summer camps are the answer to your ‘quarantine prayers.’ Classes are offered online and in person and are divided by ages (8-12 and 13-17). The classes are customizable too aimed at a child’s interest and ability. The Acting & Improvisation online class (Friday, Saturday and Sundays) is very interactive helping students develop a solid acting technique using fun improvisational games and exercises. There is even a session on successful auditioning techniques. In July there are Monday thru Friday intensive weekly sessions. For budding film makers, Danner offers an online class where they can collaborate with other students to create a final movie. They’ll learn writing, directing, cinematography and production techniques. For serious students, Danner offers an intensive online workshop on Breaking into Hollywood from getting headshots, a show reel to getting an agent and securing an audition. Michelle Danner is an international film director and acting coach. And yes, she has worked with Seth, Penelope and Chris and other noted performers. Her classes are taught by top acting coaches who utilize a variety of proven activing techniques. One key goal is for each student to develop their personal “Golden Box” of tools and talent.
