Online Acting Lessons with Creative Kids Acting

Available for Grades K4-12.

Enlightium Academy partners with Creative Kids Acting to offer students the chance to study acting with Chris Gilmore, a respected casting director and experienced acting teacher. Ms. Gilmore and her co-teacher have taught thousands of acting students of all ages, many of whom have gone on to star in movies and television.

Creative Kids Acting classes are designed for the students to have exciting adventures in creativity, build confidence, stretch the imagination, and develop reading and memorization skills, as well as learn many different types of performance skills and emotional delivery. At the beginning of the class, Ms. Gilmore will meet one-on-one with each student for an evaluation to ensure each child is placed in a class best suited for their development level.

Classes are held twice per month providing four hours of live instruction monthly. The class theme changes monthly and throughout the year. Special assignments are given to students between classes. Creative Kids Acting will assess each student’s acting level and place them in a group of students with similar skill or comfort levels, not necessarily by the student’s age or grade level. Creative Kids Acting is available to both full-time and part-time students.

A core element of this acting course is engagement with other students through live sessions and learning through reflection. Student video participation in live sessions is required. These sessions are recorded and made available to the students in the course for reflection and learning through the process of reviewing their performance.

Some of the themes that the course may cover include:

  • On-camera acting techniques for film, television, and commercials
  • Comedy improvisation
  • Method acting
  • Meisner technique
  • Character building

How Many Hours Does My Student Need to Complete for Creative Kids Acting?
