Starting September 15, Mr. Holiday’s School of High Drama and Over Acting will be presenting Acting for Life at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in downtown Fort Myers. The class is for ages 8 to 13 and will run for eight Thursdays from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
“Ever since Cheers and Seinfeld went off the air, Thursdays have been a great night for a fun, interactive and rewarding experience for children,” says Shawn Holiday, who has been directing children’s plays and teaching since 1998. “I found a great new location for my Thursday class this fall and I’m excited about bringing more educational programs downtown. We had a great camp at the Davis Arts Center this summer and it’s a terrific place for anyone to find their own voice.”
Shawn Holiday has taught youth classes and workshops for many organizations, including Southwest Florida Chamber of Commerce, BIG Arts, Canterbury School, United Arts Council of Collier County, Sunshine Elementary, Edison/Ford Winter Estates, First United Methodist Church, Florida Dept. of Juvenile Justice, Lee County Library System, and Lee County Parks and Recreation.
Some of the skills to be emphasized during Acting for Life include diction, poise, teamwork, communication, creativity, problem solving, personal expression and responsibility. The cost of the 8-week course is $110. For more information, please call (239) 333-1933 or visit www.sbdac.com.
