Dayton Theatre Classes

Acting Classes

with AJ Breslin

Whether you're preparing for an audition, actively rehearsing a production, or just want to consistently stretch your acting muscles, TheatreLab can help!  Our acting lessons feature a strong emphasis on partner work, so students are taught in pairs. This allows each student to be acting alongside a peer  and encourages the development of working relationships within the theatre community. Don't know anyone you'd like to sign up with? Contact us for a consultation and TheatreLab will find another individual student in need of an acting partner. Utilizing a combination of viewpoints, text analysis, and the aforementioned partner work, the instructor will help each performer achieve their goals and become the best actor they can be!


“...people were inspired by the way you helped me and I’ve even noticed them borrowing my new techniques!”

Theatrelab Dayton's Musical Theatre Classes are year-round focusing on the disciplines of singing, acting, and dancing. Our classes are open for all ages and levels of experience, from students looking to pursue a career in the arts to adults who want to hone their craft or explore new ways to create. Our theatre classes explore a diversity of rehearsal tools and techniques in pursuit of dynamic and authentic performance. Classes are available for weekly participation or the occasional drop in and scholarships are available.
