Young Actors Workshop December 6 & 7

Dear Parents and Young Actors,

Lance Dreesen has so much to offer any young actor.  An internationally award-winning filmmaker, Lance Dreesen is also an acclaimed acting coach and instructor, with students of all ages who are consistently working in TV and film.  One of Dreesen’s, and Chez Studio’s, greatest success stories is Pierce Gagnon, who starred in “Looper” with Bruce Willis, the TV series “Extant” with Halle Berry, and the upcoming “Tomorrowland” with George Clooney.

We have already had much interest and requests for this Youth Workshop so please sign up right away if you want to attend.  We will post this to our website tomorrow but send this to our friend list to give you first chance at a spot.  This is our last Youth Workshop for 2014.

About the Workshop:

In this fun weekend workshop, Lance will bring out the natural performer in each and every student with a combination of audition technique, improvisation, and on-camera acting.  

In a safe and supportive environment, Dreesen guides his students, from beginner to experienced, to trust themselves and use their own behavior, personality and charm in their acting.  Most importantly Lance will guide them to gain freedom in front of the camera.   His confidence-boosting techniques will not just help your child “get the role” , but also prepare them to arrive at an audition, or on set, feeling relaxed, excited, and ready to let their unique talent shine!  A joint Q&A session for the Parents with Lance & Shay Griffin will be held at the close of Saturday’s session.
