The best new acting classes at Prana!

Acting class instructor Prana Center Holliston

Hey, we really think they are the best! And read on … sure you’ll agree!!!

Announcing four new acting classes

  • Brand-new – “Let’s Make a Play!” In this fun acting class for K-2, our youngest actors will learn to work as a team as they write and perform their own play! Taught by Prana’s newest teacher, Alecia Thomas, an accomplished actor and director as well as an experienced drama teacher (and mom of 3 young children – pictured!)
  • Brand-new – “Acting Technique” For our most serious actors up through high school – this is really college-level material. You’ve probably heard of the various famous acting schools (such as Strasberg and Stanislavsky) but few young actors know how to incorporate their philosophies into their acting. Also taught by Alecia Thomas, who studied these techniques at the Tisch School at NYU
  • Popular returning class – “Scene Study” Also for our committed actors who want to hone their skills to get that next big part and shine on stage. Includes a mock audition and work on monologues to get you more comfortable with challenging material. Taught by experienced actor and teacher Karen Dinehart, who also led this class last year
  • Popular returning class – “Kids Acting Class” Exactly as described! Just the right class for grades 3-5. Using age-appropriate games and improvisational techniques, you will become a stronger actor and have a lot of fun doing it! Also with the wonderful Karen Dinehart, who has years of experienced teaching and directing kids and adults. This filled up fast last year!!
