There are currently five classes offered. Each class follows a similar schedule for 10 weeks, but varies in content of class material. Each class is offered in both the Fall and Winter. Class placement is determined by age and professional judgement of the instructor.

***Winter Classes begin on January 18th, 2014*** 

Class structured on building a passion for acting and comfort on camera. We will learn the ins and outs of auditions, tweak our improvisation skills, and work with scripts of our favourite movies and tv shows! (Zack and Cody, Hannah Montana, Harry Potter, Toy Story, Wizards of Waverly Place). Of course, it will be all put to the test when we create our own mini- production-that’s right- all by ourselves! This class is jam packed with fun, energy and tons of learning!

Recommended Age: 7-10
Sundays @ 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. 
Cost: $250 per session (10 classes)

Conveying emotions is essential for a good actor. This class is heavily focused on learning to dissect the script and discover the character’s moment-to-moment truth. We will also work hard to perfect our auditioning technique and get our hands wet in the art of production. Everything from script analysis, developing characters, storylines and acting for the camera will be covered! It will be challenging, but that’s not to say it won’t be oodles of fun!

Recommended Age: 9-11

Tuesday @ 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. 

Cost: $275 per session (10 classes)
Sundays @ 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. 

Cost: $275 per session (10 classes) 


Reels is heavily focused on: cold reads, setting scene and character objectives, auditioning, and taking direction. This year, the Reels Class will be entering the world of improv as it relates to film. Through 10 weeks in the Fall, we will help students learn how to tell stories without the need for memorized lines so they can appreciate how to truly be in the moment. The scripts in Reels tackle more sensitive content and challenge the actor to explore emotions they are not used to expressing easily outside of acting.

Recommended Age: 11-13

Mondays @ 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. 
Cost: $300 per session (10 classes) 

Our Teen Class is a highly structured session with 10 classes built, as always, on the fundamentals (“Key Method”) with an emphasis on character creation and development. Each week we will build on the skills needed to create a complete and fully formed character through theory and practical lessons, all while working on auditioning, improvisation and scene work. The class will offer an opportunity to tackle difficult scenes which often deal with sensitive or controversial material all within a safe and nurturing environment. The scenes chosen will often be selected from mainstream movies and will not be censored most of the time. This is to prepare actors for scene content for the Manitoba film industry. Students must be 13 years of age or older to register.

Recommended Age: 13-18
Wednesdays @ 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. 
Cost: $340 per session (10 classes) 

*Expressions Film Studio reserves the right to cancel any class if the minimum class size is not met. The current minimum class size is 5 students.
