The BASELINE designation is reserved for the introductory level of each course that Catapult offers. Each Baseline course is a prerequisite to its corresponding INTERMEDIATE or aDVANCED class, and should be taken in order to progress in Catapult’s Youth Acting Track. There are occasional exceptions, inquire here. It should be noted that Advanced classes can be taken indefinitely, as the material is always changing and no two semesters are the same.
This introductory class serves as the foundation for young actors pursuing a career in TV/Film. Students will learn the basics of script analysis, character development, the history of TV/Film acting, and how to connect with their most authentic self within any given scene.
Circuit Acting is an acting class that makes every attempt to remove “acting” from the acting room. There’s one common thread with the best actors … they don’t act. They “be”. They understand the importance of truly immersing themselves in the situation (i.e. the scene or audition), listening and being 100% present. They understand the extreme value of connection. Through exercises and lectures emphasizing the above characteristics, our goal is to take every actor from a place of “acting” to a place of “being.”
This is an introductory course to improvisational comedy – an ever growing art form where the actors make up everything in the moment. This class will teach actors how to listen, say YES, embrace discomfort and failure, and develop an awareness for comedic timing.
Advanced youth improvisers will be invited to audition for Catapult’s improv house teams. This class will continue the training from Improv Baseline, developing stronger characters & bolder comedic choices.
Calling all littles! This weekly class is an energetic and creative environment that focuses on the beginning steps of on-camera work. Four to six year old students will explore, use their imaginations, play, build confidence, and practice storytelling.
In TV/ Film acting, actors bring stories to life in front of the camera. This baseline course teaches actors how to create fun yet truthful characters and get comfortable delivering scenes in front of the camera!
This intermediate class will continue to build a strong foundation for actors pursuing a career in TV/Film. Students will expand their knowledge of script analysis, character creation, and how to connect with their most authentic self within a scene.
Advanced Scene Study is designed for young actors on a professional path and was specifically created to help actors sharpen their scene study skills in a focused, intensive way. In this course, actors will explore and dissect scenes in every single class, working toward developing nuanced, compelling characters that serve the text. Actors will be challenged by the specific material chosen for each class, the instructor, and their fellow students, all while learning to create memorable performances in their TV/film auditions and on-set work.
This brand new comedy course offers actors the opportunity to dive into sketch writing and sitcom acting! Actors will work on scripts from hit multicam and network sitcoms, learning the tools and techniques of this style of acting. Students will also write and act in their very own sketches!
