|CYT Semester Workshop Program|
SO YOU WANT TO BE AN ACTOR….
The Workshop Program is about Process. Through engagement in weekly acting workshops, CYT provides a place where young and emerging artists can actively develop the fundamental performance skills which will allow them to successfully navigate, over time, the demands from a short performance to a full length production.
Acting Ensembles use drama games and activities to train skills in improvisation, voice, movement, character, storytelling and theatre making in a variety of styles and structures.
Each Actors Ensemble has a specific program developed to incorporate strong fundamentals in acting through a variety of skills and performance styles. Actors work collaboratively with their tutor to create a performance outcome, based on the interests and skills of the class, culminating in a final performance for family and friends at the end of each semester.

Using Drama games and exercises, 7 - 9 yrs Ensembles are introduced to the elements of performance – voice, character, movement and story.
They work collaboratively with the tutor to adapt a story or devise an original performance, which utilizes these elements in a fun and dramatic way.
A great class for building confidence and creativity.
10 - 12 yrs Ensembles are introduced to different styles and conventions of performance, while continuing to develop essential skills in voice, movement, character, improvisation and story.
Delving into a particular style, actors will work in collaboration to create an original performance that responds to the ideas of the group and experiments with conventions of a new performance style.
13 - 17 yrs Ensemble will be introduced to new acting theories, exploring what happens when improvisation meets script.
Actors will focus on developing high level performance skills through applying improvisation techniques to scenes from well known scripts, ranging from Shakespeare to contemporary Australian theatre, to film and television.
Using a range of performance mediums, actors will learn how to interpret and work with script, whilst drawing on a broad selection of dynamic improvisation exercises to bring the scenes to life.
