Loads of Fun!

Lots of Learning!

During the summer months of June, July and August, our usual acting classes will be replaced with our Summer Fun Acting Camp!

These classes are full of summer fun for our young actors.

They include:

  • Comedy Improvisation Exercises and Projects
  • Analyzing with a director’s eye, great movies and TV shows and then acting out the very scenes in them.
  • Writing, producing, and acting in the kids’ own productions which will be presented to their parents.
  • And more!

Taught by successful casting director and producer Chris Gilmore. And Producer/Director, Gene Gilmore

So…Whatever you’re thinking an acting class for kids and teens is, you will be happily surprised!  This acting class, taught by professional casting director, producer, and set coach of over 15,000 kids and teens, Chris Gilmore.  It is much more than just a class where students learn how to act professionally on camera for movies, television and commercials.

The added benefits of this incredible series of classes are:  It builds the student’s self -esteem and self- image.  It teaches discipline and focus as well as teaching students to use their creativity and imagination.  It empowers the students to be able to speak in front of a group with great confidence and improves memorization, improvisation and even helps develop a sense of humor.

From start to finish all students will learn the art of comedy, drama, two-party scene study, cold-reading, monologue technique, comedy improvisation as applied to on-camera film and television performances as well as commercial techniques.  Every month is a different acting theme.  This course is the Real Thing, and if acting professionally is the goal, students will receive all the skills necessary to pursue a professional acting career while having fun learning them.

THE ADDED BONUS:  At the end of every month, all parents will receive an on-line video of the students’ performances in class so you can watch their progress. (upon request)

Learn the real “Tricks of the Trade” with woodworking.  This course is designed for the young person (and parents) to become familiar with the wonderful world of wood.  You will first of all be introduced to all the concepts of safety and how to use hand tools as well as power tools.  The student will understand the differences of various woods and will start out with simple projects and evolve into designing your own projects.  The instructor is a seasoned professional as well as a former teacher teaching woodworking classes to students and adults.  He is very motivated to provide your child a great experience.  The class is held at his cabinet making business just two doors down from EIE.
