Hello! My name is Jordyn and I would love to help you reach your acting and speaking goals! I only recently began offering lessons, but I've been acting and helping others act for over a decade. I received my BA in Theatre from Knox College in 2014, where I studied many different acting and directing techniques. I am an extremely passionate and enthusiastic person, which pours over into my lessons. I've loved theatre since I was a child and teaching theatre is a dream come true. To me, there's nothing more lovely than seeing someone shine and knowing that I helped that shine to happen.
I teach several acting classes to children ages 4-5 and 6-8. We do games and activities that help build stage skills including voice and speech, movement, building a character, projecting, portraying emotions and more. I also direct them in a short play that's performed at the end of each 10-week session.
For the six weeks of Summer Academy, I taught 5 classes every weekday: 2 classes of Creative Drama for Kindergarten through First Graders, 1 class of Creative Drama for Third through Fifth Graders, and 2 classes of Mini Musical for Third through Fifth Graders.
In each class, the children learned the basics of acting through drama activities/improv games and participated in the production of several short plays (or a short musical in the Mini Musical class), performed for parents on the last day of Summer Academy.
