Tap into your inner performer while learning how to think on your feet, project your voice and build your confidence. Being the centre of attention can be a scary thing for some, and acting can help relax your nerves and conquer your stage fright. For others, being in the spotlight is invigorating, and Extra Ed programs give ample opportunity to express yourself and be seen by others.
