BIYT-LOGO

Berlin International Youth Theatre

 

 

Open to New Students as of September 2017

An opportunity to develop acting skills, build self-esteem, create theater in English and make new friends. Taught by veteran actress and director Priscilla Bergey.

 

Probestunde/tryout sessions will be held throughout the month of September and again in January for:

The BIYT Ensemble  Ages 13-19

Saturdays 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

and

The BIYT Lab Ages 9-12

Saturdays 10:30 am – 11:30 am

 

The first term begins on September 2 and ends on December 16.

The main focus of these classes is discovering the magic of theater. How does it happen? Where does it come from? This process involves stretching and strengthening the basic tools of acting everyone already has – the imagination, body and voice. The first part of the class consists of fun, relaxing theater games to free the imagination, make us feel comfortable within the group and inspire self-confidence. The second part focuses on scene building exercises, character analysis and improvisations which include working with text (memorization, interpretation, as well as the creation of original text).

In January 2018, our second term students (ages 13 and up) will have the opportunity to begin work on the annual BIYT production.

Prices: The first session for a new student is free. This gives the student the opportunity to decide if they would like to continue. After that a full commitment and monthly payments are expected.

BIYT Ensemble:
57 € per month – 45 € per month for additional family members.

BIYT Lab:

50€ per month – 40 € per month for additional family members.
