SUNDAYS

Description: Students in The Actors’ Workshop will become better performers through the principles of imagination, controlled release of inhibitions, and common sense. Students work on techniques for developing individual talents without trying to “sacrifice the personality in lieu of the method.” With individual attention applied to individual abilities, the student and teacher attempt to discover and emphasize what works and diminish what doesn’t. Monologues, scene study, voice and articulation, character development, improvisation and audition techniques are incorporated to help make each student the best performer they can be.

There will be no classes the week of Spring Break March 13th-19th.

Please select the class/classes you are interested in taking this Spring! Full descriptions of each class are available on our website for your reference. All Academy classes are $180/student with a 50% discount available for those registering siblings or for those registering for more than one class. Once we have received your submission, we will calculate your total amount due and send you the link to our PayPal account to process payment! Please submit one form for each student enrolling.​

DANCE CLASSES
-For all Dance Classes featuring a “Beginning” or “Intermediate/Advanced” designation in the title, please sign your student up (or yourself) for the class you feel they belong in, but if we need to make a change, we will place the students in a different dance level if their ability is noticeably beyond or below the other enrolled students in that class. This is not to separate good dancers from bad dancers, or an A Team from a B Team. This is to put our students in a class level that is appropriate for them to learn and the teachers to teach. One semester of “Beginning” does not qualify you for being in the Intermediate class the next semester. It takes TIME for the body to adapt to dancing. If the appropriate level does not fit with your schedule, we also are very happy to offer private dance lessons.
-**The Adult Dance Classes will be for adults, while the other classes will for Kids and Teens.**

Also this semester we are very pleased to offer PRIVATE DANCE LESSONS! These lessons will be one on one with your student and one of our accomplished Dance Instructors. Scheduling will be determined by you and the instructor. There is no better way to improve your dancing! We are still offering PRIVATE VOICE LESSONS as well. If you register for those below, we will contact you for scheduling and teacher preferences.

We will email you a PayPal invoice for class payment within 1 business day of registration for classes.

SPRING SEMESTER COVID-19 PROTOCOLS:
The following protocols come directly from the GTC board, producers, and company as a whole. These are the same protocols we have been observing for mainstage productions this year.

These are subject to change, we will let y’all know immediately if and when they do.

Our protocols will include:
-mandatory mask wearing for all students and teachers at all times except when actually performing onstage in Aristocats, Much Ado About Nothing, or the Spring Showcase.
-A COVID test (provided by GTC) of unvaccinated individuals as well as vaccinated individuals when experiencing symptoms within four days of Aristocats, Much Ado About Nothing, or the Spring Showcase.

We want to keep everyone safe while you are here, so we do not take these steps lightly. Together, we can keep people healthy and keep our productions and classes going. When your classes begin, please be mindful of these steps here at the theater.
We strongly encourage everyone to get vaccinated now if you are eligible and have not otherwise done so. This is very important to protect not only yourself but also your colleagues. We cannot stress this enough. Every major medical group endorses the Covid vaccine, and this is the best thing you can do for your colleagues and this production.
We are not making a political statement. This is the best advice we can give you to ensure the safety of our cast/crew as well as the success of our productions.

As always please contact our Academy Director, Matt Beutner, at (940) 231-5068 by text or phone, or email at academy@granburytheatrecompany.org with any questions and concerns.
