Teen Acting Techinque
Taught by Ryan Kessler –
- On-Going Class (4 classes per month)
- Saturdays 2pm – 4 pm
- $200/4 week s (1 month)
Acting isn’t learned by just doing or from quick clever catch phrases. Like all of the arts it takes solid technique, talent and the skill to put them together. In this unique class, our teen actors will learn the tools an actor needs to bring a character to life and the techniques necessary to use those tools effectively. This is the perfect starting place for the young actor thinking of becoming an actor. The really good young actors today make it look so easy. You aren’t supposed to see the hard work behind the performance. That is the craft of acting. This is the the the first major building block in a solid foundation that will last a lifetime. Our Teen acting technique classes will begin building that foundation.
Each class is broken into two separate parts designed to help the young actor find their voice as a performer. In the first part students work on an exercise called the Acting Barre, a series of exercises developed to stretch and strengthen the acting muscles (from opening up the emotional life to recreating a real life person as a character). The second part involves scene study. Students are given either a theater or film scene to work on for the month. The scene is blocked, rehearsed and performed under the guidance and direction of Ryan Kessler.

“The teen acting classes at the Penny Templeton Studio are an incredible experience. Ryan Kessler teaches the class, and I took something away from it every single week! Ryan is such a relatable human being and a great teacher. He truly made me feel comfortable and welcome each session. Penny’s approach to acting was far deeper than most I had explored, and after a few months of taking classes with Ryan I started receiving a lot of positive feedback from casting directors and agents. All in all, this class is amazing. It’s affordable, and helped me get to the next level in my acting career.” Madison, age 18
“The teen classes have been such an amazing education and experience for me. The techniques Ryan teaches have helped me become a well-rounded actress. Through these techniques I’ve learned to tap into my emotions. It is unbelievable. I even cried once; it shocked me, because I didn’t know it was possible. That goes to show how informative and important this class is. I get to learn how to become a great actress, not only by a great actor himself, but also by other teen actors. I cannot wait to be back with my family at the Penny Templeton Studios.” Sabornee, age 16
