BOP Actors Studio

9YRS – 13YRS

BOP Actors Studio term classes will be on a  Monday and Tuesday for our 9-13yr olds, they will have a strong focus on improvisation, a wonderful and necessary tool for all actors in Theatre and Film and TV.

During these classes we focus on the skills required to help our young actors work confidentially in the field of Screen Acting, this also will encourage a better understanding of themselves for theatre.

At BOPAS our goal and aim is to teach our actors to a high professional industry standard, giving them the necessary tools so they can build confidence, understand their strength, and help them build up those areas where they are still learning.

We teach this through a variety of ways, acting techniques and movement, working to camera, understanding combat acting, improvisation, script writing, character development and film making.

A lot of the work is done to the camera and this allows our actors to view their work as they go, we also do our best to upload these classes online after each session so you as a parent are able to view what your child did in the class.

Price

$140  is the cost of the semester. This must be paid in full before classes begin. Please contact us if you have any questions or problems in regards the class fees.

Class Tutor: Monday & Tuesday – Aaron Mayes

  Aaron grew up in Canterbury where he found his love for acting in his late teens performing in a high school performance of Grease.

He then went on to gain a Bachelor of Arts majoring in theatre studies at the University of Otago. Aaron acted in and directed numerous shows while in Dunedin including the Otago University Capping show.
After graduating Aaron spent two years on a theatre tour traveling New Zealand, and then moved to Singapore for four years where he worked as an acting teacher, he was head of LAMDA tutoring, and a member of the board of directors at a large and successful performing arts school.

Aaron is back in New Zealand for good now, and is very excited to have the opportunity to teach and share his passion for the performing arts again here with us at BOPAS.

Aaron is represented by TMH Management.
