Here at Catapult our mission is: Professional level training, designed to create better people. Our studio serves clients of all ages and experience levels, with a heavy focus on youth programming. A few of our current working youth clients include Priah Ferguson (Stranger Things), Will Buie (Disney’s Bunk’d), Owen Vaccaro (Daddy’s Home, The House with a Clock in Its Walls), Navia Robinson (That’s So Raven) and Katelyn Nacon (The Walking Dead).
Over the past couple of years, we have started to take our on-camera curriculum out of the studio and integrated into local schools, organizations and studios around the country. Each curriculum is specifically formatted to fit the needs of each school.
If you are interested in bringing Catapult into your school, organization or studio; please inquire HERE.
INSTRUCTOR: DEXTER MASLAND DATES: JAN 10TH – MAY 15TH DAYS: FRIDAYS TIME: 11:30-12:15PM
Students will learn how to empower their imagination (which will help hone their creativity), become an effective and empathetic listener (bettering their focus), command their space (key to being confident), and connect with others on a deeper level (something seldom taught to young people).
INSTRUCTOR: ERIK LINGVALL DAYS: WEDNESDAYS TIME: 12-1:30PM
“When we began our desperate search for a really, really good drama coach for the students at The Lionheart School, I never imagined we would meet someone such as the exceptional Erik (with a “K”) Lingvall. Without much of a preamble, we encouraged Erik to come in, get to know our students and to just do “his thing in his unique way”. Erik and his team bounced in to the building with energy, enthusiasm and intentionality. With his enormous smile, his never say no attitude and his passion for learning and learners, Erik moved our talented students from shy and reserved to excitedly asking to be first on camera or to direct. Erik, thank you for your dedication and commitment to your craft and to The Lionheart School students.”
Elizabeth Litten Dulin, M.Ed.
Co-Founder and Head of School, The Lionheart School
INSTRUCTOR: ERIK LINGVALL CLASS: ACTING FOR TV/FILM DAYS: THURSDAYS TIME: 3:30-5PM
As the founder of the #1 TV/FILM training studio for young actors in the Southeast, Erik Lingvall brings with him a very unique approach to teaching actors. Erik’s method is equal parts technical training for the camera, and personal development for the human. In this 16 week intensive, students will dive into the art of on-camera acting, learning how to create compelling and authentic characters. Through Erik’s three step process of letting go, owning the moment, and connecting students will learn what it really takes to achieve their highest level of excellence both in front of a camera, and in life.
