The JPAS Experience at Levine Academy

JPAS is offering some fabulous performing arts enrichment classes taught by our JPAS staff hosted at Levine Academy this Spring – classes are open to everyone. You DO NOT need to be a Levine Student to attend.

Improv for the Stage
Learn one of the best skills an actor can obtain. Through imagination, creativity, and discovery learn to be in the moment, think out the box, and on your feet for TV or for the stage. Learn to work with your fellow actors while increasing your self-awareness so that you can shine on stage and captivate an audience. Taught by Donald Rey who has studied at New York’s UCB and spent 20 years developing proven, easy-to-use improv techniques that have helped him book 40+ commercials, including a recent national booking with Chef Gordon Ramsey, and TV shows like Law & Order and Queen of the South. Now, he has bottled up that secret sauce of his to help you do it too!
