Spring Class Schedule 2020

Spring classes will be offered virtually for the 2019/2020 school year!

Due to the closure of school buildings for the 2019/2020 school year, Class ACT has moved our previously scheduled K -2nd, 3rd- 5th and 6th - 12th grade Spring classes to Fall of 2020. Our Spring Preschool class has been made virtual.

Virtual Preschool: Magic Shoes

Weekly Videos available on Mondays

May 4th – June 12th


Dates and times updated as of 4/13/2020

The virtual version of this class will be the same awesome class, we’d planned for Spring, but now accessible in your home. 

Every Monday, we will post three videos (15 – 20 minutes in length) for registered students to enjoy.   You will be able to play any of the current week’s short videos as many times as you like until Friday afternoon.  That’s 45 minutes of fun all week for six weeks; with new videos to look forward to every Monday.

Activities include imagination games, singing, dancing, and a journey with a new kind of magic shoes each week!  Your young actor will feel like the teacher, Abbi Hanson, is talking right to them!

6th - 12th: Virtual Playwriting Class

Weekly Videos available on Mondays.  Zoom meetings on Wednesdays and Fridays from 3 pm – 4 pm.

May 4th – May 29th


Dates and times updated as of 4/13/2020

Learn how to create characters and dialogue and watch them come to life!

In this virtual class, young playwrights will learn the basics of playwriting from published playwright and veteran teacher, Willow McLaughlin.  Instructional videos will be made available to registered students each Monday, with a writing exercises to be completed by Wednesday and Fridays meetings.  On Wednesdays and Fridays, students will meet with the instructor in a Zoom meeting, where they will read each other’s works aloud and give and receive constructive feedback.

At the end of the class, students’ final scenes will be read, acted out and filmed by ACT volunteers, so the final product can be given full feedback.

3rd - 12th: Online Acting Coaching

Times scheduled between coach and student (Parents must be present)

May- June

$50 for three 30 minute sessions

Dates and times updated as of 4/13/2020

This class is a great opportunity for your student to get individual help on their acting skills.

In a once a week, 30-minute Zoom meeting, an experienced acting teacher will work with your student on a comedic and/or dramatic, age- appropriate monologue.  In the three scheduled sessions, your student will be coached on stage presence, expressing emotions vocally and physically, timing and more.  Lessons will be tailored to each individual student’s needs.  

We ask that parents be within hearing of their student’s Zoom sessions during their scheduled times.  This class can be repeated if more sessions are desired.
