Limelight Academy
Gold Program (10 Months)
Course Breakdown

*All private lessons in the Gold Program are one hour, once per week for 10 months

MONTH 1 – IMPROV


This course allows the actor to perform without a script. Directors love to use improv on set, and it’s a very beneficial skill to have when doing commercials. Knowledge of improvisation is extremely helpful with interviewing/spokesperson skills as well.

MONTH 2 – COLD READING


The focus is on reading aloud from a script or other text without any rehearsal, practice or study in advance. Learning the skill of cold reading is very important to an actor’s career. 85% of auditions are based off of a cold read.

MONTH 3 – SCENE STUDY


During our scene study instruction, students learn how to perform with multiple actors. This is a necessary component that all actors must learn.

MONTH 4 – ON CAMERA


Understanding acting for the camera is an important asset. We combine acting with how-to’s for performing on camera to enhance your performance and get those acting jobs.
